Resounding Joy is thankful for the amount of support received from volunteer work and two types of interships:
- administrative internships for high school students
- marketing and development internships for college students
The most rewarding aspect of internship is seeing how the students grow from their work experiences. In 2014, Resounding Joy had the pleasure of hosting an administrative intern named Clay, then a student of High Tech High. During his internship, Clay helped to create a playlist library and to facilitate music therapy sessions. Upon completion of his term, he submitted the following words of appreciation to the staff.
You have all made my experience in music therapy better than I ever could have asked for. This has really affected me in many, many ways. You guys have changed my life and opened new doors for me, and, for that, I am very thankful. I feel blessed to call you my mentors and friends.
