To future Interns,
AADAP takes pride in its staff, clients and volunteers, as we do in our Interns. Our Interns come to the agency with an interest in the substance abuse field and we are fortunate that they, in turn, share their own expertise and passion to help others lead a life of sobriety. The Intern Spotlight is a new feature that showcases a few of our present Interns. We hope that this will offer a closer glimpse of the valuable individuals that are an asset to our mission and community work.
Angelie Rose T. of Development- I was introduced to AADAP through my friend Malcolm and I currently work with the Development Team as their assistant, which oversees the fundraising of the organization. What I bring to the Development Team is being a hard worker, a great listener and being a positive person. The prospect of working with a large organization like AADAP will prepare me to work with similar organizations. Also, it allows me to serve others in a more meaningful way.
Jeremy D. Bailey of Olympia Academy- I’m presently enrolled in my first year in UCLA’s Master’s in Social Work Program. I’m interested in mental health and clinical social work and have enjoyed working with, and learning from, both the dedicated staff and the resident’s at Olympia Academy. I’ve gained so much valuable experience through group facilitation and especially through building relationships with the resident’s who continually impress me with their strength and by allowing me to assist them through their struggles and many challenges. I feel privileged to have this experience and have gotten to know many special people through this process.
