Family Services Department Intern

June 2019 - August 2019 New York City, NY
“I got this internship through the W.I.S.E. Program and I gained professional experience by being supervised by the Family Services Department Director, a Social Worker, Case Managers, and a Housing Specialist. I liked the time frame, which was from June 10th-August 2nd. I gained amazing bonds with both my coworkers and the Career Services Department team. In addition, I liked how I was offered to continue working at the shelter throughout the semester. Lastly, I liked how we had weekly workshops geared towards professional development and learning how to engage in self-love and care. ”
