It was an exciting week at HSP as we welcomed three new members to our wonderful internship team.
First up we have Robert Struggles who is joining us from Elmhurst College. Robert has joined HSP as an intern to complete his degree from Elmhurst’s Spanish department. In his time at HSP he will be helping HSP with community outreach, contributing to our newsletter and social media, as well as working with our clients in the Children’s Birthday Project ensuring they receive the services we offer. Robert says he’s also excited to utilize his language skills to help us better serve our clients who speak Spanish.
This week we also welcomed Stefani Krautstrunk who is studying English at Northern Illinois University. Stefani will be helping HSP identify potential new sources of funding for our programs and apply for them as a Grant Writing intern. Stefani is involved with a co-ed service fraternity at school, and says she is very excited to be interning at HSP combining her interest in writing with her love of service.
Last but not least, we also welcomed Alex Kuo to the intern team this week. Alex attends Wheaton College where she is studying Political Science and Journalism. In her time at HSP, Alex will be helping HSP reach out to the community about our programs, helping to spread the word about ways people can get involved in making a difference in our community.
We are excited that these bright interns will be joining the HSP team for the next few months. Please join us in welcoming Robert, Stefani, and Alex!
