Mercy College Graduate Completed an Internship



Melinda Roc, a recent Mercy College graduate who majored in Behavioral Science specializing in Health Services Management, interned for Meals on Wheels in the Community Outreach Department. Melinda says that "interning at Meals on Wheels gave me my first real insight into the professional world. It allowed me to see how an organization is run daily and how many different people are needed to ensure productivity and success. However, I have to say what I loved the most was the organizational culture. Everyone is so welcoming and willing to help you. In addition to that, the entire staff believes in the mission of the organization and they work together to make it happen. Most important to me, I improved my skills in Microsoft Office applications specifically Word and Excel. Interning here also allowed me to build a confidence that I can use in the future."

Dominican College Graduate Completed an Internship



Jenna Vinci, a recent Dominican College graduate, completed an eight month internship in the Meals on Wheels' Social Work Department. Jenna tells us that she learned a lot while interning at Meals on Wheels. Jenna said that "I was fortunate to be able to engage in actual Social Work job responsibilities, including client assessments, intakes and home visits while interning at Meals on Wheels. I found that many of my classmates did not have that type of opportunity at their internship placements." Jenna will be starting as a graduate Social Work student at New York University come this fall. Meals on Wheels thanks Jenna for her hard work and wishes her the best in all future endeavors.
