An internship is a professional learning experience that offers meaningful, practical work related to a student’s field of study or career interest. An internship gives a student the opportunity for career exploration and development, and to learn new skills.
Welcome Neighbor STL is fortunate to have our very first intern working with us this semester. Her name is Ana Flavia Schemes De Lima, from Curitiba, Brazil.
Ana is a Global Studies major at Fontbonne University with a special interest in refugees. She has been helping us with a wish list of organizational tasks in addition to the added bonus of getting to know our Welcome Neighbor families.
One of her assignments is to interview some of our WN families along with their family partners and share their story with the WN community. Ana interviewed Reeaan Alayed and her family partner Janice Seele for her first story.
Welcome Neighbor STL is very fortunate to have so many talented volunteers working together for the sake of our New American friends resettling in St Louis.
One of these volunteers is Courtney Mitchell, our Welcome Neighbor summer intern who came to us from Washington University in St. Louis. Courtney followed in the footsteps of Ana Flavia Schemes, who was our Spring intern from Fontbonne University – Saint Louis.
We are very fortunate to have such talent and thank them for their service! Please contact us if you are interested in becoming a volunteer intern in the future with Welcome Neighbor STL.
We are very fortunate to have Incredible Welcome Neighbor interns who help our organization in so many ways.
Anna Laine completed over 113 volunteer hours with us over the fall semester. She is a Global Studies major at Fontbonne University – Saint Louis. Thank you Anna!! You will be missed!
