Why Internships? Because they make a difference!

On Thursday (11.15.12) I will be posting questions to help evaluate organizational readiness for internships. Following are reflections from DJ Morgan related to his internship and the year we spent together. You, also, might want to check out Experience Mission, where he now works: http://www.experiencemission.org/

During a 1-year internship when I worked under the leadership and direction of Jim, I had the incredible opportunity of exploring my life goals. During this training, I learned many new things about myself–who I am, my strengths, my weaknesses, what I value–and the future I wanted to have. I was able to look at my life and where I was headed and set concrete goals for myself. Jim helped me process what it was I wanted to do and who I wanted to be, and I can’t thank him enough for his patience and dedication to all of us (interns) while we moved through our life and faith journeys together.
