"My internship gave me a new outlook on life. It made me excited for my future and what I can do as a psychology graduate. I can see myself working at Partners in Excellence again in the future, I love the way they run the center and the people there are great and friendly. It's rewarding to see progress in the kids and know that this program works. Making connections with the kids and seeing them laugh and enjoy themselves is also fullfilling to me."

“During my summer internship, there were several stressful situations when I was put in the position of lead counselor. This made me a better decision maker and a stronger leader. However, the most important thing I learned about myself is that I have the ability to change an individual’s life. Being given that opportunity is absolutely priceless.”
