My name is Hope and I’d like to introduce myself as Benton Habitat’s Outreach Intern! In this position I reach out to groups around the Corvallis community to spread the word about our volunteer opportunities as well as serving as a point of contact for those who have volunteered in the past. I assist our Community Engagement Manager, Daniel, in a variety of tasks such as updating our calendars, creating donation request letters, and more generally recruiting new volunteers. I also manage our relationships within the community and work to create new ones.
I wanted to get involved with Habitat for Humanity because I have a passion to help my community. My overall goals are to work in a management position at a nonprofit, and this internship matched these goals perfectly. I get to learn about how nonprofits work; how they run, fundraise, and sustain themselves. Habitat can have such a wide affect on so many families and I’m proud to be a part of that.
Feel free to reach out to me if you feel like getting involved in Habitat- I would love to meet you! (firstname.lastname@example.org)
