This summer Neighborhood House Association is excited to welcome 33 interns into its Reginald J. Phoenix Youth Fellowship Summer Internship Program. The program is geared to provide an educational and working experience for high school and college students, and prepare them for future professional endeavors. The interns will be employed throughout the four NHA main locations during the summer. The internship program was created by Reginald J. Phoenix, a former NHA employee who passed away earlier this year. Mr. Phoenix was a devoted employee who was always enthusiastic about giving back to our youth.
NHA President and CEO, Rudolph A. Johnson, III envisions all youth to grow as future leaders. Congratulations to the 2014 NHA summer interns!
A group of our summer interns created a children’s book on ‘Compassion.’ For their intern project they had to research and define the word “Compassion” and how it relates to NHA. The interns created a children’s book that incorporates characters inspired by the employees of NHA. Isabel Lopez, Keith Laguitan, Yvette Laguitan and Max Corral worked diligently in the development of this book so we thought that giving each of you a copy would be great for memories. We are proud of their creative project and dedication to the agency. To read the book, please click here.
Our summer interns were also tasked to write a paragraph about their experience in the NHA Internship Program. Here is what they said:
