Intern Spotlight – Sarah Wittlinger

Sarah Wittlinger, a Senior at NIU is in the Internship Program this fall, interning with Girl Scouts of Northern Illinois. Sarah is a Communication Studies major and a Nonprofit & NGO Studies minor.

Q: What project(s) you are working on as an intern?

Sarah: This semester, I am the Virtual Program and Recruitment Intern. I am currently working on social media advertisements for recruitment events that Girl Scouts of Northern Illinois is hosting.

Q: What is the biggest benefit and/or the coolest part of your internship experience?

Sarah: I love being able to create advertisements that are seen by hundreds of people! Finding out that those advertisements that I created are actually helping us gain more members is incredibly rewarding!

Q: In your opinion, why should students pursue internship opportunities?

Sarah: Every time I attend one of our all staff meetings, I am reminded of the importance of each and every role of members of the Girl Scouts of Northern Illinois team. I learned about these roles in my nonprofit classes, but it’s incredible to actually see it in action.

Q: Please share any additional comments you have about your internship experience. 

Sarah: I would like to personally thank the Roberts Family Foundation for their generous support. Without them, I would not have been able to be a part of this incredible opportunity.

The Internship Program is a collaboration between the DeKalb County Nonprofit Partnership, the Center for Nonprofit Studies, and Career Services at Northern Illinois University, supported by the Douglas C. and Lynn M. Roberts Family Foundation.
