Humanitarian Service Project would like to introduce you to the first new member of our intern team in 2014, Amanda Larsen. Amanda is currently studying Couple and Family Therapy at the Adler School of Professional Psychology, and she will be completing her “community service practicum” at
while she works toward her degree. Amanda will be working directly with the
needy seniors served by our Senior Citizen Project. She will be interviewing
the seniors and writing an official “Senior Update” on them, to update HSP’s understanding of the needs of each senior, as
well as to better learn how our services have impacted their lives. We look
forward to having Amanda here working on this very important project. Amanda says
she is very excited to get going on this project, and is happy to be getting
the experience of working with senior citizens.
Prior to enrolling at Adler, Amanda received her Bachelor’s degree in Psychology from
Amanda’s eventual career goals are to work as a counselor with new parents or
with military families. She has been involved in service for most of her life,
so she’s sure to feel right at home at Illinois
Wesleyan University HSP.
In the past, Amanda interned at an Addiction’s Treatment facility, and has
previously done volunteer work with Habitat for Humanity and her church.
Outside of school and service, Amanda says she loves to cook and eat (two
passions she feels go hand in hand.)
