My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for Partners of the Americas, Inc., Washington, DC, USA
I connected with Partners first as an intern for the President's Office, next as a Communications Fellow, and then as a volunteer. This is where I first got my feet wet in DC and since then - and definitely as a result of my experiences with Partners - I've gone on to hold several meaningful and fulfilling positions. The relationships that I established with Partners' staff proved invaluable to me as I developed my professional network and learned marketable skills. Even more importantly, Partners is a place where I made some wonderful friends.
The staff at Partners are kind and passionate, interns' feedback is valued, and dedication and intellectual curiosity are rewarded with progressive responsibilities. I look forward to continuing my relationship with Partners, and would recommend an internship or volunteer position with the organization to any young professional with an interest in Latin America, social justice, or international development in DC.
If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
... formalize the intern alumni network so that previous interns could meet other energetic young professionals like themselves, and better keep in touch with the excellent staff at Partners.
