It’s been a pleasure working with the lively bunch at Miracle Foundation’s Austin headquarters. Being an intern here is very hands-on. Each day, I research opportunities to help our organization grow. I have watched my research go from the earliest preliminary stages to actively supporting our programs. The work I do in data management for Miracle has taught me to use Excel and other programs at the professional level in a unique, engaging environment.

The folks at Miracle are so dedicated that I always feel rewarded for my efforts. The supportive community at the office is what keeps me excited about coming in every day. I’ve always wanted to work in the nonprofit sector, and Miracle has given me the experience I need to get my foot in the door. Moreover, they have taught me to be a compassionate, dedicated, and engaged employee – something all organizations look for. Internships should take you farther than the classroom, and my work at Miracle has brought me out of study and into practice in a fun and rewarding way.”

This organization has changed my whole perspective on the level of thoroughness, thoughtfulness, and love that goes into caring for these kids. The Miracle Foundation has blown me away with their attention to detail, from employing the Rights of the Child as established by the UN to their scaleable model for measuring how these rights are being met. The thought of these incredible children being cared for, encouraged, and supported to thrive fills my heart. I’m always wanting to know how else I can help, and what I can do to support this excellent organization.”
