A typical day at my internship involves monitoring several parents of our clientele. The monitoring is to make sure that the advocates are doing their job with respect to advocating, teaching mentoring and instilling greatness with the at- risk youth.
I am responsible for front desk responsibilities such as answering phones, greeting incoming guest and providing individuals with helpful resources within the community.
I create entry surveys for clients who begin the program and I create exit surveys for discharged clients. At times I shadow directors and advocates while they are out in the field with respect to in the home counseling and courtroom appearances.
I have learned that it is beneficial to work as a team with coworkers. Management is learned over time and my co-workers are the individuals that I need to make a lasting impression with besides my employer. The hardest part is not being able to help everyone in need however, doing the best that you can is beneficial. The most enjoyable part is being able to make courtroom appearances because that is where my biggest passion lies.
