During this internship I was able to work with counselors and their clients by having one on one interactions. Most days I would take notes during sessions and ask questions when needed. I was able to grow as an individual and figure out what population I wanted to help as a social worker.

Counseling (Former Employee), Orlando FlJuly 29, 2014
Pros: free breakfest lunch and dinner, free home
Cons: there wasn't any cons. i actually loved this job
Well to began there were a lot of kids from different places. Some had different personality's and different attitudes. I didn't know what to expect but I was ready. When the kids got there they were so attach to me. That was a good things, because i didn't want to be the one who got my head chewed off by the kids. So when the next day came the kids started to poor there problems out to me, and i was the listening ear. There wasn't really anything that was hard about the job. The job was enjoyable and it was a good experience for me because i never been camping or even a counselor. I learned a lot with being at the camp. I learned that people can have a big smile on the outside but on the inside there is hurt, and pain. My coworkers and manger was awesome they gave me everything I needed when I asked and we all got along.

Counseling
Prevention Specialist (Current Employee), Houston, TXApril 13, 2014
Pros: helping others, team work, presenting, seeing the positive outcomes
Cons: n/a
Working with adults and youth in a prevention setting, giving them valid information in regards to knowing the difference of what is healthy for their lives. On a typical day at work I am at various locations preparing my presentations and activities to present the information in a more descriptive creative way with videos, handouts, and group examples. In order for the audience to see and act out how things could affect them and what outcomes or consequences follow. One challenging part of my job maybe if I wasn't able to reach one person in understanding the severity of the information that I am presenting, then I try harder to getting the to understand.
