As the social media manager, I have almost complete autonomy over the execution of my day-to-day tasks. This is a huge positive for me because I am the first employee in this particular role and have the experience necessary to establish an ongoing marketing strategy and management identifies and appreciates this. Because the Center is a small agency, employees often wear multiple hats so there shouldn't be any surprises if you end up working on assignments that aren't specifically on your job description. Regardless of the work to be done, your management and peers will always appreciate the flexibility and actively work to let you know they appreciate everything you contribute.
I've worked at many non-profits, but this place has so much character and positive energy that the memories. It's great to have the support of the boss with a mission of helping kids. I miss my days working there and always think fondly of my time at The Center. I hope to return some day and say hi to everyone.
While working here as a case manager, tasks were unclear and chaotic. An organization like this is needed in the community but it is not administered well enough to carry out its mission effectively.
During my senior year at Colorado State University I worked as an assistant to teachers and case managers. I enrolled individuals and families for assessment, education and individually designed programs. I also managed computer database of confidential client files.
I would start out at the front desk, answering calls and transferring them to various people at The Center. I would close out files for clients who were no longer in the program and fill out a termination form. I also got to learn about possible funding opportunities for non-profit organizations; I called various businesses to see if they would be interested in advertising some of the services The Center offered and wanted more publicized around different areas. The co-workers would sometimes have tasks for me to do, such as delivering flyers or sorting files. The hardest part of the job was not having much to do on most days, whereas a large task would sometimes be loaded onto one or two days to be completed; the disorganization was also a difficult aspect of this internship. I enjoyed sitting in on interventions that my supervisor would perform for clients; I also liked to be able to go to diversion meetings at the court house, where the District Attorney was present.
