Title

Kentucky Youth Advocates

Description

Throughout this summer, I worked with Kentucky Youth Advocates as a Child Welfare Policy Intern. I focused on building my knowledge of non-profit advocacy work, the policy-making process, and community partnerships. Many of my internship projects explored the effects of childhood trauma and building resilience in response to such experiences.

Melissa was an awesome summer intern who accomplished an amazing amount of work in a short time period. Not many students can say their summer internship included an interview on a statewide TV channel!
