Intern teams meet today to fine tune and polish their grant proposals and presentations. You are not working at your agencies today and do not have to make up the time. Take this day to really finalize and practice your team work in support of your non profit agency. Your presentations will be reviewed by our board of trustees and content, along with your public speaking and group effort, will be reviewed in a competitive process as we allocate funds to your non profit agencies. Have fun but be professional!

“Foundations and Board Membership”
Forest Foundation is a non-profit focused on leadership development and also a grant making foundation. Its board members determine allocation of the foundation’s resources through grant proposals. Interns are divided into groups early in the summer and work to write a grant for a small, innovative non-profit whose needs match the foundation’s giving guidelines. This day includes the intern group presentations to the board as a culmination of the grant-writing project. Board members decide the amount that each non-profit will receive.

“Civic Engagement for a Lifetime”
After a summer experiencing the world of non-profits, how do you connect your learning to your studies, community work and career aspirations? Through reflection and focused presentations, we close the summer with ideas for making a living while making a difference, and developing an ongoing commitment to social justice.
Today will be the last day of the ten week internship for most interns! Some of you may have finished earlier while others may be working later into August. Some of you may have extended your position into the fall academic year as well. Thanks for your hard and dedicated work with your agency and with us this summer. We encourage all of you to consider our second year intern program next summer. Details are on our website and will be updated as January 2018 approaches. Good luck and thanks.
