This summer, Bryan Zin interned with Lynn Luckow at LikeMinded. LikeMinded offers nonprofit, civic, and public leaders a place to showcase their organizations and connect with donors in their communities. Bryan’s role on the team revolves around promoting the organizations that the website features and spearheading the outreach and recruitment of new projects. After Bryan expressed interest in improving his leadership skills, they decided to set up meetings dedicated solely to the development of this skillset. Bryan says that it is truly invaluable to get this insight from Lynn, as he has been the CEO of numerous companies. As Bryan heads off to college in the Fall, he says he is excited to apply what he has learned at LikeMinded to future endeavors and thinks that the Future Grads program has been a truly formative experience.
Meals on Wheels
Shea Tuli’s supervisor refers to her as a superstar intern. Shea was a marketing intern for Meals on Wheels team and she chose to concentrate in this field largely out of curiosity. She came in not knowing much about marketing, but Shea says that working at Meals on Wheels has opened her eyes to a whole new career path and has definitely helped shape her future goals. As such, she says that her biggest piece of advice for future interns is to take chances – the best way to get the most out of an internship is by diving into fields that you don’t know much about. Shea also joins the team in dropping off meals to the elderly community and these interactions have quickly become one of her favorite parts of the job. She says that she truly enjoys the way in which this allows her to feel connected to the community and that she treasures some of the great conversations that she has had with members.

And finally, this summer would not have been possible without our partner companies, nonprofits, the San Francisco Police Department, and the San Francisco Police Foundation. Thank you for everything that you do; your commitment to changing our community for the better is truly admirable.
