Susquehanna Bank Summer Nonprofit Internship Award

Melanie Herbert

As an intern at Girls on the Run of Lancaster, I will have the opportunity to create programs and assist with activities that encourage youth development through creativity and exercise. Girls on the Run staff help to teach young girls to be healthy and confident young women through these empowerment programs. By planning events, training coaches, promotion, and data collection, I will be able to apply my knowledge of different cultures and backgrounds learned in sociology to help the diverse Lancaster community and gain skills for the future. I hope that by helping to make a change in just one young girl’s life and being a part of such a hardworking organization, this internship will also help me to grow both personally and professionally.
