Emma Villella is a senior Nonprofit and NGO Studies major and Spanish minor. This fall, she is participating in the Internship Program and was paired with CASA DeKalb County
Here is what Emma had to say about her internship experience so far:
Q: What projects are you working on as an intern?
Emma: I’ve been working on all of CASA’s social media, maintaining the website, and marketing materials. Also, I’ve been creating a “How To” document regarding the major annual fundraiser that CASA holds. Additionally, I aid with event planning and other random tasks.
Q: What is the biggest benefit and/or the coolest part of your internship experience?
Emma: I have formed many relationships through this internship! I am so grateful for the networking that I have been able to do. Also, I have gained a lot of experience with different online tools (Hootsuite, Mailchimp, Little Green Light, etc.).
Q: In your opinion, why should students pursue internship opportunities?
Emma: It’s an amazing opportunity! I have been able to network, build friendships, and learn a vast amount of knowledge about the nonprofit sector that you can’t learn in the classroom.
Q: Please share any additional comments you have about your internship experience.
Emma: I am so grateful to the Roberts Family Foundation for their generous contribution to bettering our community. My experience with CASA has been priceless, and I feel very blessed to have been a part of the Internship Program. Thank you!
