Impactful Internships: How to Create the Best Experience for Your Intern and Your Organization
A successful internship program can be extremely rewarding for the young person and the nonprofit organization, positively impacting our community as well as the individuals involved. Our panel will share their perspectives on what today’s interns expect from their experience, what the best practices are and what resources are available to develop your program and attract strong applicants. The AFP-Greater Madison Chapter’s goals include preparing for the future by engaging young professionals and young people who are interested in philanthropy. Impactful internships can help us to make progress toward that goal.
