I’m Kate Donovan, one of the the Secular Student Alliance's summer interns! It’s nearly time for school to start again, and as our campus affiliates are gearing up for an action-packed year, our summer internships are wrapping up. With my own time interning at the SSA coming to a close, I wanted to tell you more about what the summer meant to us.
SSA's 2013 summer interns Liz Dudek, Kate Donovan, and Tori Rehr
As our communications intern this summer, I got to write press releases, learned how to reach out to journalists and bloggers, and improved our use of social media. If you’ve interacted with the Secular Student Alliance on Twitter or Facebook, you’ve been talking to me!
Tori Rehr, our summer resource development intern, led the charge to overhaul our online affiliate support, making sure that our students have the information they need. Now, students have centralized materials to help them with things like problem-solving, leadership transitions, and capitalizing on advertising momentum. When students have questions about anything from preventing burnout to dealing with hostile communities, she’s made it easy to find the answers. The list is extensive; you can check out the work she did here!
