Testimonials from United Way Interns:

"My internship experience with UWBV was phenomenal and provided me more work experience than my previous internships. As the Resource Development Intern, I was able to learn how to properly engage and recognize donors and other fundraising and campaign strategies. Not only did I learn a lot, but I enjoyed the UWBV team and their constant wisdom and encouragement. I always felt as though I could ask questions and that I was valued as an intern. To anyone deciding which internship experience to have before entering in to the professional world, I recommend working with United Way. While many may think it is "just" a nonprofit, I learned valuable business skills that I've been able to take with me in to my new career- and my internship solidified my passion for development!"

"As a Human Resource Support Intern, I had a wonderful summer at United Way of the Brazos Valley working together with a group of brilliant people that strives to build a stronger community. I worked on three projects during the summer: Employee Benefits Study, New-Hire Orientation, and the development of an internship cohort program. I had the opportunity to learn about nonprofit management and operation by exposure to organizational documents, committee meetings, and conversation with managers from different departments. I appreciate the coaching and feedback from Alison on a lot of different subjects, and also thank for Brenda for training me on general HR duties. It was a valuable learning experience."

"Completing a summer internship for United Way of the Brazos Valley was a meaningful experience for me because I was able to see the role that the community plays in helping United Way fulfill its mission. During my internship, there was a lot of time spent preparing for Loaned Executives which are volunteer advocates for United Way’s mission and help to raise money for the annual campaign. I was involved with ordering materials for the LE training as well as positing information about LE training to United Way’s Facebook. Ultimately, all of the work I had put into helping prepare for Loaned Executives paid off when I got to see the training day take place. Getting to see so many people from local businesses involved in helping United Way was a great experience."
