A Word from Our Leadership Team!

My advice would be to just join! I remember thinking about joining for a while before I actually did, but once I was in the program, I couldn’t imagine my life without being apart of it. The Leadership (Internship) Program is extremely rewarding. The program has helped me build character and gain a sense of professionalism and leadership skills. Through it I’ve made some of my closest friends. I would suggest you just take the leap and fill out the application.

The HIM Internship Program has taught me many skills that are vital to my future such as organization, responsibility, and the importance of communication. Although I am still a teenager, I am learning important job skills and these traits can carry me far in life. Through the HIM Internship Program, I gain real work experience and I have met many other high schoolers through this program. Also, the other interns and officers have been so kind and are always willing to help me, which makes me feel grateful and happy to be an intern. This amazing program helped me become part of something big and impactful.

I love the HIM internship program because it gives me an opportunity to volunteer while gaining leadership, management and communication skills. This program allows me to meet new people, learn from them and utilize those new skills to my own life. I get to learn more about the organization I volunteer for and how it functions so smoothly and orderly. Although it is the beginning of this internship, I have learned so much so far, and I’m eager to learn more information.

The HIM Internship Program is super organized and within these two and a half months, I have learned how much work it really takes to run such a successful organization. I have also been able to obtain several leadership and professionalism skills that I will definitely use in the future. The program has strengthened and challenged my work ethic, commitment, time management, and verbal & written communication. Furthermore, it’s amazing how the internship program is led by officers that have been previous interns within the HIM organization and it makes our leadership family more closely connected.

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.
