The interns this year were fantastic! Of course, I say that every year as God chooses these young adults to spend 75 days with ACE in Jamaica. This year was no different. We had a returning intern, Tahj, who worked as our Inventory Coordinator and Trainer for this year’s team. Anthony, our 16-year-old sponsored student and beehive honey expert wannabe, joined our iQuest team as a 4S student. (Second Story Summer Series).
Many things were different this summer versus past summers. These interns leave having established a new series — the next generation — for iQuest: iQuest 2.0. Our Jamaicans led the teams for most of the summer, while the American students supported the leader. Volunteers were great in trusting the process and our Jamaican staff from “hello” at the airport to “we will miss you” at the departure. Certainly, ACE has come of age…. and it’s all good.
If you or someone you know is interested in interning with ACE next summer, please contact Susan in our stateside office at firstname.lastname@example.org. We will be accepting applications starting September 1st.
