Swedemom Center of Giving welcomes interns from a variety of backgrounds. Through the McMinnville Economic Development Partnership, we create an opportunity for students to share their knowledge and experience with others, while also gaining new skills and knowledge at the same time. This process is done through the production wheel where items are sorted, intaken, imaged, described, final checked, put away, sold, packaged, and shipped.
With new knowledge and skills circulating throughout the hub, great and innovative ideas could bring about exponential change, increasing profits and changing the way things are managed or done. This could potentially lead to a more successful donation-to-profit result. Not only do students' knowledge and skills create new and innovative ideas, but the sharing of this knowledge and skills could help others volunteering or working by providing them the skills necessary to get a job and make a living for themselves. It is a step towards them providing a better future for not only their self but also for those around them.

My internship at Swedemom Center of Giving was an incredible experience. I was able to step in and be apart of my community while helping non profits. The work I did is relevant to my desired career path and a perfect fit for my internship. At Swedemom’s I had the opportunity to sharpen and refine skills I already possessed as well as learning new skills. I was able to make connections with the individuals I worked with and they made me feel at home!
