My internship with Nuestras Raices required a lot of self motivation and self direction. I enjoyed the sense of responsibility that it required. I also enjoyed the high level of community interaction and a space for me to practice my Spanish.
I think Nuestras Raices is a beautiful organizations that faces the struggles that many Community Based Organizations face. However despite this Nuestras Raices is pretty organized is very resourceful with the limitations that it faces.
This is my second year working with Nuestras Raices and overall it's a great learning experience working with them. Nuestras Raices really enjoys having interns and values them deeply so it's a great place to work. You'll learn a lot about community based orgs and gain some great connections.
