I was one of 8 interns that were hired to operate an Inner City Youth Baseball / Softball Program for kids in 1st-8th grade. It was a completely free league for the kids of Inner City Grand Rapids. Each kid was given a glove (if needed) and a uniform (shirt, pants, hat, socks) and we provided bats, balls and the field for them. Every intern was assigned a field and two volunteer field staff members. A typical day involved everything administrative that went on behind the scenes of the league, and some coaching and umpiring as well. It was an absolute blast and I would recommend this to anyone.
Ever since I started working for YMCA and started being a leader at Kapolei Elementary School, I automatically felt as if I belonged there. The co-workers make me enjoy coming into work everyday. I learn something new everyday and it’s just a great working environment to be in in general.
