# of GROW Interns: 4 Length of Stay: 5 weeks Dates of travel: Early June - Mid July
GROW Internship Grassroots Onsite Work
Through Grassroots On-site Work (GROW) internships, students build capacity of their partner organization, engage in mutual learning, and ensure long-term stability of their partnership. The GROW Internship set out to evaluate and improve upon the conditions of the new project, Financing Futures. Budget planning along with assessing possible business approaches was the first priority for this visit. Meeting face-to-face with members of the community was the best way to fully understand the problems that these families were facing. Over the course of 5 weeks, the Grow Team met with 35 of our beneficiaries and discussed the best possible ways to ensure a successful, sustainable way to generate income. We look forward to sharing the highlights of the trip with the DU chapter in the fall.
