“Although Covid changed the way in person work happened, I was still able to get the full experience of an internship from Kennari. I learned more than I expected to, and I walked away with new skill sets that boost my resume. My ideas were shared and never turned down. I was able to attend an event on behalf of Kennari and this helped open my network. I now work with the company I work with because of Kennari Consulting!”

“My internship at Kennari allowed me to be exposed to all elements of non-profit fund development in an up close and hands-on way. I was able to work side by side with consultants and project managers on client facing projects that had a real impact. My eight months at Kennari gave me the confidence and skills I needed to enter the workforce in development. Additionally, the team at Kennari wants nothing but the best for their interns and played a crucial and supportive role in my job search.”
