Intern Highlight: Max’s Journey

I’m so grateful for my opportunity to volunteer with MentorWorks. I volunteered with them for a social work internship. MentorWorks has given me a lot of experience in working with a population I didn’t have any prior experience with. I’ve been able to individually meet with many clients, hear their recovery stories, help them learn, grow, plan, and achieve their goals. The clients have had rough lives and have a lot of experiences to share. Not only have I been fortunate enough to play a small role in helping clients learn and grow, they have helped me in my own journey, as well.

At first, I felt like I didn’t have a lot of wisdom and experience to share, but the MentorWorks management team has really valued my opinion. They made me feel like I was a crucial part of the team and that my insights mattered. The staff genuinely care for each client and put their blood, sweat, and tears into helping them improve their lives. If you’re looking for a really rewarding volunteer experience, look no further!
