Farewell Spring 2011 Interns!

One of the most rewarding aspects of the nonprofit field is meeting and working with so many talented and passionate interns. At TYO, we usually learn as much from them as they do from us.

Which is why it is always so hard to let them go!

Three months ago, I introduced a few new folks to TYO: Leila, Adam, Colin and Mathilda. This fantastic four has shared their own passionate blend of stories, skills and knowledge with the Nablus community and TYO since January.

Last week, all too soon, it was time to say farewell as these phenomenal individuals continue along their own paths to affect positive social change at home and abroad. Adam begins law school this fall. Leila begins a Hart Fellowship in June. Mathilda is staying on at TYO to coordinate the Triple Exposure project, and Colin also joins our summer team to coordinate youth activities before beginning a Fulbright fellowship in August.

This was a tremendously talented and incredibly valuable group. They taught classes in leadership and communications, music, English and photography. They set up community English courses and organized an evening soccer league for neighborhood youth. Each week, they shared their stories and experiences on this blog. They will be missed!

Congratulations and farewell, Spring 2011 interns! Thank you so much for your service, efforts and hard work. We wish you the best of luck with all your future endeavors!
