“Everyone was so welcoming and the organization really felt like a community. Also, the opportunity for growth and learning was huge. ”

“Working for Sadie Nash was an amazing experience. I got an inside look of what it is like to work for a non profit organization based in the inner city. My main role of Dean during the summer institute program was great because I spent my time educating young people of color on social justice issues and things that come up often in their communities. Being and educator but also a mentor melded together two passions of mine and I got to spend my time being a role model for outstanding young people.”
