Interns Speak On Civic Engagement and the Mayoral Internship

On Saturday April 27th, four Mayoral interns, accompanied by advisors Conrad Lee and Sam Lai, spoke live on the Seattle Chinese Radio about their experiences in the Mayoral Internship. These interns were Melissa Lin, Liana Wu and Megan Lu from the Blog and Media Project as well as Kristin Yao from the PATH Outreach Project.

Interns and advisors discussed how the mission of Pathway Foundation to help high schoolers become civically engaged has become valuable to them. “This internship is unique in that interns are not given tasks to fulfill,” said Megan. “We are responsible to managing our own civic engagement projects and for setting deadlines for ourselves.” The interns gave their thoughts on how the Mayoral Internship has helped foster important skills like time management and interpersonal communication to succeed in school and prepare for the workplace. As high school seniors, interns Liana and Megan also expressed how their experiences in civic engagement helped them on the college application process. Kristin also reflected that “the Mayoral Internship has really developed my skills as a leader and as an engaged member of the community.” 

 

Great job to the interns for the Mayoral Internship’s first radio show! You can watch the recording here.

    Hey just wanted to give you a quick heads up. The words in your post seem to be running off the screen in IE. I’m not sure if this is a formatting issue or something to do with browser compatibility but I figured I’d post to let you know. The layout looks great though! Hope you get the issue fixed soon. Cheers|

    You really make it appear so easy with your presentation but I to find this topic to be really something which I feel I might never understand. It kind of feels too complicated and very wide for me. I’m taking a look forward for your subsequent articles, and will attempt to get the grasp of it!

    I’ve been surfing online more than three hours today, yet I never found any interesting articles like yours. It is pretty amazing to me. From my perspective, if all web owners and bloggers made good content as you do, the net will be much more useful than ever before.

    Hey! I know this is somewhat off-topic but I was wondering which blog platform are you using for this site? I’m getting fed up of WordPress because I’ve had problems with hackers and I’m looking at options for another platform. I would be fantastic if you could point me in the direction of a good platform.
