Meet our 2017 Student Interns

Jason Albert: 10th grade

I will be focusing on inputting information on survey monkey and analyzing the data.  I applied to become an intern because I am not only becoming more involved with KHK, but I like the idea of helping out with technology. I believe that it is very important to be involved with an organization like this because it helps others, while also helping the volunteers with skills like leadership, confidence, and respect. I will gain many skills and further strengthen the ones I already have through KHK. Every little bit of help can make a huge difference in someone’s life!

Tyler Marzen: 10th grade

I love technology and I have helped KHK transfer over their web content to a new word press web platform.  I have also been involved in organizing the data process of keeping track of current and past volunteers using constant contact. In addition, I am a lead ambassador for the Quarterly Birthday Bash event.

Christian Lesoravage: 9th grade

I also like technology and want to learn more about how a nonprofit organization runs so I am looking to do many different things that KHK needs. I will be inputting information through survey monkey to track our volunteer and ambassador feedback. I will also be doing research to document how youth led service impact our community and the volunteers themselves. In addition, I will be looking for ways to structure and improve our monthly orientation meetings by attending and getting feedback from the guests.
