    Saket, Operations Intern

    My time at VOA has been nothing short of eminent. VOA has created a magnificent culture where interns can grow without bounds. The flexibility and kindness of all immediate staff made interning at VOA a great experience. Whether it was the support of the IP Team in any project I was willing to take on or the tremendous amount of knowledge and wisdom my supervisors were able to pass on to me, I always felt like my growth was first and foremost the priority of everyone around me. Everyone at VOA deeply cares about giving back, a quality I hope to emulate at every crossroad I reach after my time here.

    Mikeysha, DEI Intern

    The VOA Intern Team works hard to assure that the intern cohort is gaining a valuable 12-week experience that involves learning team-building skills, opportunities to step into leadership roles, exercising a commitment to assigned tasks, networking with professionals outside of assigned departments and more. Being a Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion intern has taught me so much about how VOA has progressed as an organization throughout history and it has shown me how much more work needs to be done to truly achieve DEI within all of VOA’s initiatives nationwide.

    Everyone at VOA has treated me with kindness and patience. They urge you to share your goals so that you can add good-quality material that fits with your resume and portfolio. VOA cares about your self-improvement to create your best self and build upon the skills you have a passion for. I’m very blessed to have had the opportunity to work with the Communications Department.

    Veronica, Event Planning Intern

    Upon arriving at Volunteers of America, I was very nervous. I had no prior experience working in a corporate setting which, made me a bit intimidated by those around me. At first, I thought the work would be difficult and it would take me a while to catch up and understand what was going on. As time went on, I came to realize that I was wrong. My supervisor Teresa was extremely welcoming and taught me the ropes in no time. I remember just within the first day of my internship, many people from the office came up to my desk to introduce themselves to me. This made me feel very welcomed in the building. I learned very quickly that VOA is one big happy diverse family and they are always happy to receive anyone into that family. Click on Veronica's image or the button below for her video testimonial!
