Home of the Sparrow would like to congratulate all of the Leadership Greater McHenry County (LGMC) interns, and give a special shout out to our Home of the Sparrow Intern, Lexi Gray, for completing their Nonprofit Leadership Intern Program this summer. LGMC established this program to help address the growing need for leadership development within the nonprofit sector. The program provides a collaborative internship experience that includes various projects, work and professional development training for interns to gain hands-on experience while working directly with local nonprofits.
Lexi Gray has been an amazing member to the Home of the Sparrow family! This summer, she was able to help create a program focused around Diversity and Inclusion within the workplace. She also worked closely with the Executive Director and shadowed multiple employees to get an inside look at Home of the Sparrow’s development, retail, and outreach operations. Thank you so much for all that you’ve done to help further our mission and to help homeless women and children in our community. Good luck on all of your future endeavors! Thank you for a great summer!
