Hi I’m Lauren and have just finished my junior year that began in July with the fall semester in Melbourne, Australia and ended with exams and papers on campus just a few weeks ago. I am a psychology major with an education minor from Arlington, Massachusetts. After a week relaxing on the beaches and exploring the shops of Martha’s Vineyard, I am unpacking my beach gear and packing my kitchen supplies, bedding, and business casual clothes. I am excited to move back on campus on Sunday. And in just a few days, I will begin my internship at the United Way in Worcester. While at United Way, I will be the Program Assistant for the Day of Caring event that will take place in early September.

The Day of Caring event is a one-day event in which different non-profit organizations in the community submit various projects to be done by over 1,000 volunteers in the community. As the Program Assistant, I will be helping to organize and plan the event specifically the volunteers and different project sites. The internship was offered to students in Career Planning’s Summer Internship Program (SIP). I have heard of United Way and have been involved with different non-profit organizations growing up and while at Holy Cross. After participating in the Community Based Learning office’s Non-Profit Careers conference in January, I set my hopes on gaining more experience in a non-profit organization this summer. Additionally, on campus I am involved in various clubs and have enjoyed planning different events on campus and working in the community at the Boys and Girls Club. This internship will be a great experience to learn, grow, and continue to further develop my interest and skills.

I am excited to be back on the Hill and begin my internship on Monday. By next week, I am sure I will have more to update and fill you in on!
