We also seek to foster enriching experiences that enhance community and mutual understanding among our clients, volunteers, and staff.


Just Neighbors

June 2020 - August 2020 Annandale, VA
“During a time when the fate of DACA and the future of many immigrants in the U.S. was at stake, I truly felt I got to make a difference and help a community that I can genuinely connect to. As an immigrant myself, I conducted interviews and stories that helped me understand I am not alone and that we are a community at large. I also liked being able to have a lot of projects to lead by myself. For instance, I was asked to create an interactive map of clients that came to Just Neighbors and I had to find the tools, designs, and platform by myself. I also got to do research and create a resources list for new clients which would provide them with an array of social services that low-income immigrants could utilize. Furthermore, this internship was at an important time when the VA office was merging with the D.C. and Maryland offices so I learned a lot about making such a big transition in the non-profit world. ”
