Congratulations to NICE February 2013 Volunteer of the Month, Sarah Burke!
Sarah is the Employment Intern for Spring 2013, in addition to being a full time student at Belmont University and working two jobs! She helps the employment team exponentially by completing various administrative tasks, such as filling out paperwork and keeping the program’s spreadsheet up to date. Both the staff and the clients thank Sarah for her patience and understanding in completing client enrollments, filling out client job applications, and writing resumes for clients. The team would not be up to date on paperwork and would not have enrolled so many clients into the employment programs and found them jobs without her help, which frees up the Employment Specialists to do more job development and placement.
Sarah’s dedication to NICE became clear when she was a integral part of the team preparing for a monitoring visit of the Employment Programs. She helped to audit the files for completeness and immediately had a tangible impact.
Sarah has helped so many families attain self sufficiency, and for that we are all grateful. Her love of non-profits and their clients is evident to anyone who comes into contact with her and sees her big smile. In her internship she has taken the initiative to seek out assignments in other departments so she can learn about many aspects of a non-profit.
She continues to live her dream of working in a non-profit. What more could we ask for?
