Foundation Communities has enjoyed the opportunity to work with interns from St. Edward’s University for many years. In the 2020-2021 academic year, we were excited to pilot a partnership in which we hosted a cohort of paid interns across several departments, including Accounting, Communications, Institutional Giving, and Corporate & Volunteer Engagement. As a result of the ongoing pandemic, interns worked with us remotely, using tools like Microsoft Teams and Zoom to connect with their colleagues and each other. Each month, interns took part in a professional development activity as a cohort, so they could learn about the nonprofit sector beyond their role and network with professionals outside their department.
We’re very proud of all the students who served with us this year. Please scroll down to read their reflections on their internships and what goals lie ahead for them.
