What I wish was different
The office was incredibly disorganized, and there was a lot of tension between the interns program and the full-time employees. Additionally, the boss who oversaw everything was very in and out, so getting things done efficiently and positively was a challenge. It was hard to feel unheard especially in a role that was all about empowering young people. I also really wish it was paid! I have done a lot of unpaid work throughout college, and I find that it limits the people able to complete the internships so greatly; especially for a non-profit, I did not like that people were going unpaid/barely paid because it meant that only those who could afford to do so were working in the office.
