Amplify the voices of young people to equip caring adults to care better.

To intern at Springtide was nothing short of awe-inspiring; I was able to not only observe the operations of a remote-based nonprofit, but I was able to create spaces to better understand the lived experiences of young people. To do work that touches on matters of connection, meaning, belonging, and identity while aiding young people and their loved ones is not only an honor, it is a rarity. My internship at Springtide will forever be remembered as one of the best experiences I had in college: I gained skills in media, writing, and leadership, and I left with a greater sense of empathy and hope for the future.
