As a Bounce intern, Dom utilized his current communication skills and gained new ones, but most importantly, he helped others.
“Working for a nonprofit was better than I ever imagined, and Joan has encouraged me to go further than I thought I would.”
Internships provide valuable experience for college students, and Bounce Children’s Foundation® offers the perfect opportunity to apply school learning in a real-life environment.
“As a graduating Senior, I was ready to put my knowledge to work and gain new skills to add to my portfolio,” said former Bounce Intern Dom Lopez. “My Bounce communications internship provided an opportunity for that – and so much more. I can’t recommend interning at Bounce highly enough!”
Bounce Children’s Foundation has a fantastic work culture. From the other interns, to the executives, everyone you interact with is professional and courteous – and will take the time to teach and guide. At Bounce you’ll be contributing even as someone just entering the workforce.
“The culture here fosters growth on a personal and professional level, and I can confidently say that I am a much stronger communications professional after my internship,” Dom said.
Being a Communications Intern means that you’ll be carrying out a variety of interesting and engaging tasks, including interviewing families, designing webpages and writing press releases.
“You really get out of this opportunity what you put in,” Dom said. “Every week I was doing new and exciting things. If you want to learn the many facets of a job in the communications field, this is the best place to start.”
Internships are an integral part of preparing for a career in the communications world. Bounce not only provides a place to learn new skills to take with you, but also a job helping chronically-ill children and an opportunity to make a real impact on the world.
