My experience interning with Imagine Scholar was fantastic from start to finish. Throughout Phase 1, I had the opportunity to organize and host a variety of different fundraising and outreach events. Nick, our intern coordinator, served as a great resource for bouncing around ideas and asking questions. Phase 2 was my favorite part of the internship and one that I think makes Imagine Scholar unique. The opportunity to work on-site at the education center in South Africa provided the ability to see first-hand why Phase 1 is so important. After my month long stay at Imagine Scholar and getting to know the students, as well as the unique and empowering goals of the organization, I knew that Imagine Scholar was a place I wanted to continue working with moving forward. In fact, I loved my internship experience so much that I am back and part of our long-term staff! The International Development Internship is one I would recommend to anyone interested in development, travel, and working with a group of incredibly inspiring, young leaders.
