In October 2013, I joined Delhi Center’s team as a Grant Writing Intern. This has proven to be a wonderful fit, as I was originally looking for an opportunity to use my talents in linguistic analysis. The internship has proven to be a true learning experience. Cross-training is highly encouraged, and most individuals here are involved with many projects and committees. Additionally, all staff members are encouraged to participate in training workshops that will further develop their skills. The staff is welcoming and is earnestly interested in their volunteers’ and interns’ growth. Delhi Center immediately impressed me with its professionalism and large scope of services: financial stability, education, health, and community engagement. One of the most rewarding experiences thus far has been tutoring for the K-8 after-school STEM program Mathletics. I look forward to continue making positive change with Delhi Center.
I spent a year at the Delhi Center as an Americorps Fellow for the Volunteer Infrastructure Program. It was a very rewarding experience. I met and got to know many passionate people who believed in their work and the people they serve. As a Volunteer Coordinator, I was able to see how many of our programs impacted our clients. Whether it was a ballet class, an HIV support group, receiving food from No One Left Behind, or our after school tutoring program, Mathletics, the Delhi Center is able to fit the many different needs of many different people, allowing them to fulfill their potential and live healthy lives. It was an honor to work at such a great nonprofit organization.
As a Latin American Studies student I wanted to work with the Latino community and I decided to volunteer at the Delhi Center. After some time I became an employee of the Delhi Center. Since I began to volunteer for the Delhi Center every day has been a learning experience for me. It has been amazing to learn and provide services to improve the quality of life for individuals who are low income, have health issues or any other problem that is keeping them from having a better life. Volunteering and working at the Delhi Center has been a rewarding learning experience that I will never forget
