Serving the Community from our Hearts

 

INTERNSHIP PROGRAM

The Heart in Motion Internship Program is an opportunity given to members who are thinking of taking on a leadership role. The Internship Program seeks to help individuals gain experience and develop the skills necessary to be a leader. As an intern, you'll gain valuable leadership and management skills by assisting the Events, Membership, and Enrichment departments behind the scene! 
 
95% of the training and work is done online via Facebook, so it is essential that you can be online at least once a day.
Once accepted into the Internship Program, you will undergo a week of Pre-Internship online training. You will be given an overview of HIM and be prepared for training under the Internship Crew.
 
All interns must attend the Internship Orientation which is held at the beginning of the Internship Program. You will meet the Internship Crew and fellow interns. This is typically the only face to face meeting you'll need to attend. The orientation is usually held during the first weekend of the program.
 
You will be assigned a mentor and a buddy who will provide you guidance and support to ensure your successful completion of the program. Afterward, you will be able to apply for any officer position.

HOW INTERNSHIP CHANGED ME

The internship program is one of the main factors that helped shape my freshman year, and it has had a big impact on who I am today. Through this program, I learned what it really means to be responsible and reliable, the true difference between by standing and taking action, and what it really takes to be a good leader. The specialists that taught me were thorough and knowledgeable, and some of them are even better at teaching than my current high school teachers. The tests the coordinators prepare us for are extremely challenging, and really make sure we know the criteria and protocols we were trained in. One of the most memorable components of joining internship, however, was the loving and accepting family that came with it. Not only did we have a swarm of fellow interns who helped each other through everything, but we had our superiors to look up to– people who we could rely on to be role models and to direct us in all the right places. Internship, bound tight with sweat and training, provided a place of security and familiarity– an anchor I really needed, coming into a huge high school full of new and intimidating people. This program has been an invaluable experience, and it, undoubtedly, will affect the way I live my life now and the person I am in the future.
