Tesimonials from former United Way Interns:

This internship met my expectations because it gave me the chance to apply what I have learned in school to real life scenarios. It also gave me insite into how nonprofits work and the impact they have on the community. This internship was a great learning experience and I appreciate how nice and helpful everyone was at UWBV. It was easy to feel like apart of the team. - Spring 2018 Intern; Program - Master of Public Health: Health Policy and Management

Every day I was working on something new. I enjoyed the people that I worked with and I had no problem asking for advice and assistance. United Way of the Brazos Valley really push for their interns to be independent problem solvers. - Spring 2018 Intern; Program - Master in Public Health

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! - Selena Richey, Aggie Class of 2015

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. - Jasmine Walia; Program - Sociology
