WEA - Women's Earth Alliance

Programs and Operations Intern

June - August 2019 • Berkeley, CA

What I liked

-Hands on experience with nonprofit operations -Small team -Able to work both independently and collaboratively -The work I was doing was genuinely helpful for the organization and myself as a developing professional-I wasn't making coffee runs, I was learning their databases, donor relations systems, etc.

What I wish was different

I wish I would have been able to adjust my schedule so I would've been able to continue working with WEA. It was such a wonderful experience, and I think continuing my work with them would have been great and refined some of the skills I was learning


Even though the internship was unpaid, the experience I gained was priceless. I was working in the field that I hope to go into once I graduate, and was given a lot of responsibility as an intern, I was doing projects that were genuinely helping the organization and it was super beneficial experience for me. So don't shy away from unpaid internships.
