Hello All, 

   My name is Gabriella, and I volunteered at Bethany House for a semester. I am a senior at George Mason, and I’ll be graduating with a major in Communications and minor in Nonprofit Studies. With my Nonprofit Studies minor recently declared, I have found a great interest in Bethany House. I worked closely with Jenny, the development associate, who was in charge of coordinating my tasks and keeping me feel like an asset to their team. I have helped with events to promote awareness, helped out at the shelter house. In addition, I have been learning the administrative side of the organization.

    Furthermore, I have been given the opportunity to put my class work into real life experiences. I have been able to talk to Jenny about the organization’s yearly strategic planning, and she gave me more insight of how they organization organizes their budget with support from grantors, individuals, churches, and community groups. She helped me understand the in’s and out’s of the nonprofit world, and I am grateful she made the time to do so. I have gained valuable experience and hope to work in the nonprofit sector or even start a nonprofit of my own one day.

Thank you to Jenny, Naomi, and Rachel who guided me though this experience.
