As an undergrad student, I've had various experiences with unpaid internships. Often, I've found that when an internship is unpaid, the organization won't give me much to do, or will assign me unimportant tasks. At Vital Voices, this is not the case at all. Every day, I get to contribute in a meaningful way to major team projects that need the extra womanpower to get finished. It's incredibly rewarding to help in this way, and it's also inspiring to work in an office with other young men and women who are so passionate about cultivating women leaders. Vital Voices staff are not only passionate, they are also extremely professional and efficient and they expect their volunteers to be as well. Working with Vital Voices has been an incredibly rewarding experience, and I would recommend volunteering with them to anyone!
