Good things do come in threes and in our case it means three interns this summer. We have an intern working on a variety of Referential projects. The other two interns are with us courtesy of one of our clients that wanted increased resources for their projects this summer. Each Monday for the last 3 weeks one has started. They are students at St Mary’s, UC Berkeley, and Cal State East Bay, with a variety of majors. We’ve paired them with “buddies” to help train and mentor them. It’s great to add to the pool of advocacy experts. And in case you are wondering about the phrase ‘good things come in threes’, check out this blog post from Historically Speaking.
