Interns will provide assistance to Renaissance projects

June 13, 2016

[FERNDALE] – Sullivan Renaissance volunteer groups throughout Sullivan County have begun to care for their gardens and public spaces with the assistance of the 2016 class of Renaissance interns. Interns are working beside community volunteers to make a difference in their communities with projects such as new walking paths, enhanced signage, renovated gardens and tidier Main Streets.

The Internship Program is a partnership between Sullivan Renaissance and the Center for Workforce Development that provides paid work experiences for Sullivan County youth ages 16 to 20.  In addition to caring for gardens and public spaces, interns participate in weekly meetings to discuss current issues, meet with local leaders, develop leadership skills and explore career options.  They also choose, plan and implement a service learning project. 

“We have eighteen bright, enthusiastic, diverse young people this year.  Our hope is that through this program they will develop a sense of place and find their voice on issues that are important to them,” said Denise Frangipane, Assistant Director at Sullivan Renaissance. 

The 2016 Sullivan Renaissance interns are:

           Kristen Brooks – Town of Thompson

           Ember Cemelli - Narrowsburg
