Reviews

Intern

June 2021 - August 2021 Charlottesville, VA
“As a Facilitator at Power in Place, I found the experience to be incredibly enriching and fulfilling. One of the things that I liked the most was the opportunity to work with a team of people who were all deeply committed to the organization's mission and values. The culture of inclusivity and collaboration that Katrina Hajagos has instilled at Power in Place was palpable in every aspect of the organization, from the way we worked together on projects to the way we communicated with each other. I also appreciated the level of responsibility and trust that was placed in me as an intern - I was given the opportunity to work on a wide range of projects and was given the autonomy to take ownership of my work. Overall, interning at Power in Place was an incredibly rewarding experience that provided me with valuable skills, meaningful connections, and a deeper understanding of the importance of creating spaces where everyone feels seen, heard, and valued.”
