Working Toward All Rights for All – LEAP Symposium 2010

LEAP Symposium (Learning from Application)

October 15, 2010
12:30-5:15 P.M., Kendade, MHC

“Each summer Mount Holyoke students pursue learning opportunities–as interns and as researchers–where they apply their theoretical knowledge and skills to practical questions. While some students work very closely with a faculty advisor on a focused research project, others pursue internships with organizations whose mission relates to their major or minor, and still others explore summer opportunities that introduce them to a new area of interest. At the LEAP Symposium students reflect critically on how these learning experiences outside the classroom connect to their coursework at MHC, and how they have shaped their academic, professional, and personal goals.

The LEAP Symposium challenges students to embed their summer experience in their educational pathway by exploring the intersection of the liberal arts, experiential learning, and the critical questions and challenges of our complex world.”

Here’s my PowerPoint presentation about my e-Philanthropy and Development Internship with the International Gay and Lesbian Human Rights Commission (IGLHRC): Working Toward All Rights for All

e-Philanthropy and Development Intern:

“(New York based only) Interns in the Development Department Intern will work in a fast-paced environment and be exposed to a range of strategies used to support a non-profit organization, including foundation and grant proposals, corporate and organizational sponsorship, individual donor solicitation, special event planning and product sales. Responsibilities may include: conducting research, tracking findings, and developing a strategy related to prospective funding sources, including foundations, corporations and major donors; monitoring marketing and fundraising trends within the fields of LGBT advocacy and international human rights; helping to plan and organize several fundraising events, including at least one house party and a large annual awards ceremony; providing assistance with donor management.”
