Last month, we learned about some of the scary truths that people living in extreme poverty face every day. Whether it is a lack of clean water, food or shelter, issues like these remind us to be thankful of what we have and also motivate us to make an impact in the world. Those involved in Nourish have proven that they just can’t turn a blind eye to some of these frightening statistics.
With Thanksgiving coming up, we want to dedicate this month to those individuals and groups that we are thankful for: our partner organizations, students, alumni, supporters, board of directors and National Office team. We also want this series to be interactive. Nourish community, please comment on blog posts and give your thanks for the different members of the Nourish community!
This week Nourish would like to thank our National Office Team. Along with fostering a sense of community in the office and throughout the network, our staff members dedicate their day to day to supporting our partner organizations, mentoring our student and connecting the network. Each staff member brings a unique background and skill set to their work at Nourish, and we are thankful for their dedication.
Additionally, you may not know this about our staff: Three of our staff members are on the Nourish International Fellowship, which is modeled after Americorps as a year of service. In exchange for a (small) stipend, these incredible individuals dedicate their time and energy to furthering the Nourish movement. Thank you to Molly, Allison and Alex for their service to Nourish. We are truly thankful to have you on the Nourish National Office Team.
Nourish is also lucky to have such a strong intern team. Since Nourish’s founding, we have relied on the support and volunteer hours of our interns. Interns are responsible for grant writing, public relations, event planning, administrative work and much more. Fun fact you make not know about our staff: Half of our current staff members were once interns at Nourish National. Can you guess which ones? We like to say that’s proof that our internships can land our interns awesome jobs post-graduation!
Thank you to the Nourish National Office Team for your tireless work for our organization. Also, shout out to past Nourish staff and interns – we are where we are and building what we’re building today because of your work.
