HSP Welcomes Two New Interns!

This past week, Humanitarian Service Project happily added two new interns to their summer intern team. HSP would like to take the opportunity to introduce you to the two interns, Lindsey Conger and Ashley Bondarowicz. We here at HSP are excited for them to join our intern team.

Our first intern is Lindsey Conger, a student who attends Indiana University. Lindsey is a journalism major with a specialization in public relations.  She’ll fit in perfectly with our PR team, whose work includes getting the public informed about HSP.  Lindsey will be helping HSP get the word out about all the opportunities we provide to serve the needy seniors, children and families in our programs. Lindsey hopes to have a career in non-profit work, which is what led her to join our internship team. The PR for HSP includes writing for newspapers for both print and online publications, and writing this very blog.  Lindsey hopes to join a non-profit in North Carolina when she graduates.  She will graduate at the end of the fall 2013 semester. 

Lindsey has expressed that she wants to feel like her work makes a difference, and strayed away from corporate PR and stuck to non-profit PR. Besides non-profit work, Lindsey likes to go biking in her free time

Lindsey has a history of volunteerism and internships with non-profits.  She has spent time in an internship with Middle Way House, in Bloomington, Indiana.  Middle Way helps out with domestic abuse against women.  Middle Way “really opened” Lindsey up to the possibility of great work that can be done through non-profit organizations.

HSP would also like to give a warm welcome to our second intern joining the team this week, Ashley Bondarowicz.  She is also a part of HSP’s summer intern team.  Ashley attends St. Norbert College in Wisconsin, where she is a double major studying towards a communication and graphic design degree. After graduation, Ashley hopes to work in PR, marketing or advertising. 

Ashley has expressed that service and volunteerism are both important parts of her life, which really coaxed her to the internship with HSP.  In her time here, Ashley will be working with our PR team to get the word out to the public about HSP

Ashley has spent time volunteering and raising funds for the Special Olympics, and for St. Jude Children’s Hospital. In her time here, Ashley hopes to learn more about the working environment. Some of Ashley’s favorite activities to do in her free time include running and doing crafts.

Again, HSP gives a warm welcome to both Lindsey and Ashley as they join our summer intern team.  Both women are excited for the opportunities that interning with HSP has to offer.  We here at HSP are grateful for the young women joining us for the summer. Help us welcome both women to our team
