[MONTICELLO] –Interns working with Sullivan Renaissance this summer participated in their day of service at the Somerville Field in Monticello. The idea to clean up the field came from interns Mackenzie Mitchell and Samantha Dorn, who both noticed the space was in disrepair when they tried to use the track to start their conditioning workouts for soccer this fall.
Mitchell and Dorn presented the idea to their fellow interns, and on August 11th the group began to spruce up the area by litter plucking and removing branches and overgrown brush. Nine additional interns who were volunteering that day represented other Sullivan County school districts.
Denise Frangipane, Sullivan Renaissance Assistant Director and Internship Program Facilitator, said “The interns did an incredible job! We are hopeful that the project will continue through a partnership with the Monticello School District.”
The Sullivan Renaissance Youth Development and Internship Program is an educational and rewarding paid summer employment opportunity. The program is administered in partnership with the Sullivan County Center for Workforce Development.
