Review for Ocean Blue Project, Corvallis, OR, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

For students interested in working with water or other projects associated with conservation and restoration of areas near waterways as well as how nonprofit organizations work, I would recommend this internship site to those students. Richard provided me with a vast amount of information and insights as to how nonprofit organizations operate as well as the common obstacles faced. I also found this nonprofit organization to be an honest one and where the director or other employees are not highly benefitting from the funds received by the organization. Richard initially provided me with a number of projects he was interested in pursuing and placed an emphasis on determining which I also shared a common interest. All of these projects had potential for high local impacts, and it was encouraging that Richard placed a focus on making sure that he not only received an aid in projects, but that I also contained interest. Additionally, I did not experience much work with data entry tasks at this internship site, which I found to be commonplace at other internship sites. I also had a large amount of autonomy, which I found to be beneficial in personal growth. I believe that I received a good learning experience while working with Ocean Blue Project, and I feel that others would feel the same.
