I had a wonderful and positive experience at Baltimore Reads. This summer I was one of Baltimore Reads' interns. I heard a lot of positive things from a former BRI intern and close friend. I was intrigued and excited to have the opportunity to work with BRI this summer. Everyone at BRI is extremely friendly and caring, which made the atmosphere a great place to work and learn. I was able to hone my skills with letter writing campaigns as well as learn new and valuable skills in grant writing and outreach. I was also able to use my experience in civic engagement and leadership to work independently on a project for students at Baltimore Reads which would empower students to become civically engaged in their communities. Through this project and other smaller projects I was assigned I learned so much about the issue of adult literacy, something that I was not completely aware of. I extremely fortunate to have this experience because it has taught me a lot about the non profit world and given me insight to career opportunities in the future.
