Through the Eyes of an Intern

Stephanie Leonhard had been an intern at United Way of Sheboygan County for the past six months. As she leaves us to move on to finishing her final weeks of school and entering into full-time employment, we thought we would give her the opportunity to express her thoughts on working within the nonprofit world.  It was her first time working with a nonprofit and we think she learned much more than how to tend to administrative duties.  – Sandy Leske, director of community development and marketing.

Tom is passionate about helping kids.  He cares so much that he gives a large amount of money to a local youth agency.  But at a presentation at his work place, he learns about donating to United Way.  At first, Tom wonders, “Why should I give to the United Way when I can give directly to my favorite agency?”  But a co-worker explains that United Way has the unique ability to support a diverse network of services that ALL work together to help children succeed.  Often times, when people need help, they face multiple issues in order to improve their quality of life.  Kids need safe housing, afterschool programs, adequate nutrition and (perhaps) counseling.  United Way utilizes Tom’s donation so that it can address the entire well-being of people in Sheboygan County.
