If you’re thinking about applying, here are a few things previous interns have said:
“As an Art Camp intern, not only did I have a great time teaching kids about art and being there for each and every scrape of the knee, mental breakdown, formation of friendship, and so many more things with the kids, but I also got to know everything and everyone associated with Something New on a much deeper level.”- Katie G. (Michigan)
“If ASB is like a movie trailer, the internship is the behind the scenes footage. We got to learn more about all the work that the organization does and got to be more involved in the movement.” – Cherita C. (Texas)
“My first summer internship in Selma absolutely changed my life in the most beautiful way! I found a purpose, a place I have in making the world a better place, a freedom to dance and sing and be myself in a way I’d never been able to. And as I gained that freedom and purpose, I was able to pass it on to the incredible New Expressions kids I worked with! I was able to help them become free to express themselves.”- Sam L. (Pennsylvania)
“My favorite part was getting to live life with the volunteers. It was different than how I was living! Life that summer was so simple but I had more fun than I had ever had before!”- Cora D. (Texas)
