“My internship was an amazing experience and match for me. I was able to use my interest and knowledge of social work, research, nonprofit management and international issues to fulfill my responsibilities as an intern at ISS-USA and its Arthur C. Helton Institute. By spending my summer participating in this internship, I acquired the knowledge, skills and confidence to pursue a career in the nonprofit sector.”
