Language Access Intern

September 2021 Washington, DC
β€œAn extremely amazing group of people to work with. The Language Access Team is incredibly welcoming and supporting. I felt like I was part of the team and that the job that I was doing mattered to the organization as a whole. I was also able to reach out to other members of Ayuda and learn about the different parts of an NGO.”


June 2021 - August 2021 Washington, DC
β€œI liked how task-oriented my assignments were; I could work on a project and check it off day-to-day. I also enjoyed the human resources side of the internship -- I was able to review resumes, conduct interviews, and help with hiring decisions for other interns and finance managers.”
