“My internship at Kennari allowed me to be exposed to all elements of non-profit fund development in an up close and hands-on way. I was able to work side by side with consultants and project managers on client facing projects that had a real impact. My eight months at Kennari gave me the confidence and skills I needed to enter the workforce in development. Additionally, the team at Kennari wants nothing but the best for their interns and played a crucial and supportive role in my job search.”
