"This internship was THE experience that opened the door for my career in nonprofit development. The skills I learned and the projects I managed were just what employers were loooking for when it was time for me to interview. I loved knowing every day that my work was helping hurting people find hope and the Stewardship staff took me right in and coached me every step of the way." Josh R., Intern, Summer 2013

“I improved my use of technology with programs such as eTapestry. I have learned all about the different resources for homeless people and families in Eau Claire, which is extremely helpful. Finally, I have learned how to communicate with those seeking help in an effective and professional manner.” Tyler B., Intern, Spring 2013

“I learned a ton and really enjoyed being here and helping out in any way I could.  Thank you so much for the opportunity and experience, I will treasure it forever.” Erin A., Fall 2012
