2012 CSJP Intern, Amanda Overfield
"The experience as a CSJP intern exceeded far beyond anything I could have hoped or dreamed. The growth that took place over those few months is honestly hard to comprehend. I have completed tasks, learned skills, and formed friendships that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.I am very grateful to have been so blessed with the opportunity to work for Promise House. I know it sounds cliché, but Promise House has forever changed my life. I have gained a greater knowledge of what goes into managing a non-profit.
However, even though the projects and events I worked on taught me a lot, it was the people and staff at Promise House that had the most significant impact on my life. The examples they set, and the freedom they gave me to engage, learn, and ask questions allowed me to grow as an individual. Their advice and support was genuine and real. I have learned so much from this experience. Being vulnerable, setting goals, and making the most of every opportunity are important assets that lead to success, and I encourage everyone to strive to obtain these. I will carry these memories and lessons with me forever and never forget the summer that changed my life."
