Thank you, St. Lawrence Place for giving me the opportunity to serve as one of your spring, 2013 interns. This has been an unforgettable experience. The most beneficial part of this internship for me was learning more about how a non-profit organization operates. The best experience from this internship was the relationships that were established while I was here. I especially enjoyed interacting with the kids. Listening to their stories was a humbling experience. I will take these memories with me forever.
I would recommend this internship to other students for three reasons.
1) The experience of working for a cause greater than yourself, homeless families
2) The environment of where I worked
3) I have never seen or experienced a closer staff then the ones here at St. Lawrence Place. They are all very different in personality, mannerisms and work ethics, but together they work extremely well. This explains why the success rate was at 97 percent in 2012 here at St. Lawrence Place.
