“I loved getting to see how a nonprofit organization operates, and the staff at DVIS was very welcoming, helpful, and fun. The internship was also through the George Kaiser Summer Impact Program, so it was great to learn about Tulsa's nonprofit scene as a whole and to learn about the Kaiser Family Foundation. I also loved getting to go through the experience with the other summer interns. ”
