One of the highlights of my year is preparing for our summer internship.  Training our interns, planning travel details, choosing which intern will embed with which of our partner organizations… I love it!

But my favorite part of this annual routine is getting to know our new team of interns.  Each year we are blessed with a unique and exciting team that brings a whole new set of skills and experiences to the table.

This year is no different.  Brad, Jen and Tyler, our team for this, our fourth summer internship, are an amazingly fun and creative bunch.  Laura and I have had a blast getting to know them.

But enough of me going on and on about them.  Why don’t you meet them for yourself?
