Interning with On The Road Collaborative gave me the experience I needed in nonprofit studies in a caring and exciting environment. I learned first hand how an after school nonprofit program is run from the initial planning to the implementation of goals. I built a variety of different skills, such as better communication, social networking, event planning, child development, grant writing and so much more while also being able to influence youth in a positive and uplifting way. I wouldn't trade my experience interning with On The Road Collaborative for anything!" -Quetasia Faulcon, JMU graduate
