Reflections from recent Legacy interns:

Former TechGirls Intern

New Jersey

"I’ve grown so much since starting this internship! This was my first internship, so I developed both my hard and soft skills. I’ll be able to take my knowledge of proposals with me along with new social media techniques. This internship is a perfect fit for a student. I gained valuable work and personal experience through a flexible and an accommodating work schedule."

"I think this is a great organization from which to learn about different aspects of nonprofit communications and management. Culturally, everyone is so encouraging and helpful, which makes it an exciting and supportive place to learn, work, and try new things."
