Earlier in 2021, Lily, Daniela, Paola, and Maria completed internships with the CRC, greatly contributing to CRC's presence in the community. As the first intern, Lily helped pave the way for the others. She brought to life our social media presence and was a great support in the office and also with data analysis. We appreciated her responsibility and commitment. Daniela used her initiative to continue to support our social media presence and do a deep dive into our community mediation and VODP data analysis. Paola's ingenuity and tech savvy was a big help as we switched our training programs to Zoom. She also helped us with promoting CRCs work in the community. Maria helped us translate materials from English to Spanish, a hugely necessary and valuable support for CRC and the greater community. We are very grateful to our extraordinary team of interns!
Job task: Lilly focused on developing a social media influence. She also handled office work that involved entering and analyzing data.
"My first internship was at the CRC and long story short I got really lucky to be apart of such a wonderful organization. The entire team was extremely knowledgeable on the topic, but more importantly, open to learning new things and hearing peoples stories. The team and my experience as an intern at the CRC has given me tools that I can use for the rest of my life in various situations. Thank you CRC!"
Job tasks: Daniela worked on the creation of social media posts. Daniela also invested time analyzing victim offender and community mediation data analysis.
"My internship experience at the CRC has been amazing. I have been able to expand my skills as a mediator through the CRC and I have learned so much from everyone I have worked with. The CRC has opened so many doors for me as a mediator. I was able to expand my skills from parent-teen mediations to small claims. I also learned multiple other skills through different tasks I completed, such as how to gather and present data. I decided to intern at the CRC because I learned how many programs were under the CRC and I knew how important the organization was to the community. I knew the CRC had so much to offer and I wanted to be a part of an organization that focused on Santa Cruz county. I also wanted more hands-on experience with mediations and I wanted to expand my knowledge."
Job tasks: Paola helped facilitate technology support in different trainings as well as designing social media posts. She promoted community mediation training's across all platforms. Paola worked with Daniela in analyzing victim offender and community mediation data.
"My internship experience at the CRC has been immensely rewarding and beneficial to me. Everyone at the CRC has been so welcoming and I have learned so many professional skills thus far. Not only have I improved my mediation skills but I have also learned a lot about how people communicate, deal with conflict, and do their best to be heard. Overall I have thoroughly enjoyed my time here at the CRC and I am grateful that I can continue to work with them!"
Job tasks: Created social media posts and translated from English to Spanish various posts.
"Overall, it was a really great experience. I got to meet lots of wonderful people from different backgrounds. Through the internship at the CRC I have a better understanding of building relationships and listening to everyone's inputs when discussing ideas or brainstorming ideas for our project. I decided to intern with the CRC in order to gain outside experience for my major and build career skills. I wanted to use my bilingual skills to help translate important information towards our Latinx community within social media. While also spreading CRC's mission and values."
