St. Cloud Area YMCA

Marketing Intern

May - September 2021 • St. Cloud, MN

What I liked

Throughout the span of my internship, I had the opportunity to work with the Marketing and Events departments. I was in charge of helping facilitate numerous fundraising events for the Y, sponsor outreach, website design, work with OneCause fundraising tool, and digital media. I enjoyed learning about marketing within a professional environment, especially one of a non-profit. But my favorite part was the people. Everyone, especially my supervisors, we’re very beneficial to my learning success. They helped me along the way with any questions I had. Great environment will equal success!

What I wish was different

I wish that the internship would have been more full time. I enjoyed my experience and I fully understand the circumstances that it was more duration.


One piece on advice I would give is to connect with as many people as you can. An internship is a great opportunity to meet people. Being up front in introducing yourself can lead to more opportunities.
