I have been working with Beloved Streets Of America since the end of November of 2016. I have never met so many amazing people in my life that are so committed to making the world around them a better place. Every person that works for this nonprofit is committed to changing the communities that bare the name of MLK and they will do anything to help others in need. I am very thankful that I got to meet each and every person involved in this nonprofit and I will continue to do everything I can to help them reach their goals.

My experience with Beloved Streets of America has been a wonderful experience so far. Having an internship for the first time that is related to my field of study will be a great opportunity to acquire skills and experiences that I can incorporate into my career, especially since my internship with Beloved Streets of America is a very hands on and application based internship. As a human resources talent scout, my job duties include recruiting candidates, interviewing candidates looking to gain internship experience, and providing new candidates with the tools and resources that they can use to become great assets to the company. I am definitely looking forward to taking on a leadership role because I want to be able to share my knowledge with those whom I believe will work endlessly in pursuing their own goals and making sure that Beloved Streets of America will become a company that will appeal to a diverse demographic.

Hello, my name is Nichimyo Rich and I am a PR agent at Beloved Streets of America. I have been interning at BSA for almost two months and it has been a wonderful experience. It has helped me grow in various ways. Initially, I applied for this internship to help gain better experience in PR and use the skills I have learned in class in a real world setting. I also applied because I want to be a non-profit sector as I advanced in my career. I have not only used my skills that I've been taught but I've learned so much about PR in the last two months that allowed to continue to fuel my passion about that subject. This internship has also allowed me to better manage my time, be more organized and allow me to grow socially as well. I am truly thankful for this opportunity and I can't wait for what the future holds for me at this organization.

I joined Beloved Streets of America back in September of 2016. I joined because I wanted to gain more skills in Public Relations post college, to show employers that I was still trying to build my media skills. And I must say, the gains I've received from this virtual internship have been more than I could have ever dreamed. My technical writing, scheduling, and leadership skills have all increased tenfold. I've gained connections that I will cherish for years to come. And I have gotten to be a small part of something huge. I always knew I wanted a career in nonprofit Public Relations, but out of college, it was hard breaking into the PR workforce in general. Well, BSA has more than rekindled my passion for nonprofit work, and I will forever be grateful.

My BSA internship has definitely given me a better understanding of my skill set and where my career may take me, but most importantly, I’ve come to learn that I am not alone. This job has taught me that almost everybody is in my same position. Very few college students know what they want to do, and it is something that is simply not worth worrying about. Thanks to my I know that if I continue to work hard things will fall into place. Coworkers have a lot of experience and they have obviously made it in that particular field. Ask them how they got this far and what advice they have for you. You could learn a lot and get some great ideas.

Beloved Streets of America is an impassioned organization run by a dedicated and diverse group of people with a common goal: revitalization. BSA uses the philosophy and legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. as a jumping off place, and rebuilds communities from the bedrock up. There's an understanding at BSA of just what makes a prosperous community tick, of what projects and services will not only make a community safer and healthier, but also allow its citizenry continuous growth and improvement. They focus on building restorations, the implementation of basic community services and public spaces, and other efforts that can give sustainable life to a systemically impoverished area.

I've interned with BSA since December of 2016, and have seen the determination of the people who volunteer there. Their efforts began on the Martin Luther King Dr. in St. Louis, and definitely won't stop there. Hundreds of streets in America bear the name of Dr. King, and many are in dire need of BSA's efforts! Please support them today, and help show the nation that caring for disenfranchised communities benefits not only the people living there, but each and every one of us!

Beloved Streets of America is seriously one of the best non-profits that I have run into! I love their mission (it's very unique) and it's something that needs to be talked more about, especially during these times. I am currently a blogger intern and have not only learned about the issues going on related to streets named after Martin Luther King Jr., but also important skills such as time management, leadership, and writing (of course!). Everyone involved in BSA is so down-to-earth and passionate. Definitely would recommend getting involved with Beloved Streets of America if you can!!

I have been a grant writer for BSA since August and have fell in love with the mission of the organization. In the midst of all the recent chaos throughout our nation, BSA continues to stand for unity and wants what's best for communities throughout the United States, particularly those with streets that bare the name of the great Martin Luther King. They have been a pleasure to intern with and it has been exciting to see their fundrasing efforts succeed. Please donate to this organization and help make a difference!
