This is not Sabyne’s first internship with a nonprofit. Through this same program, she traveled to San Francisco in her first year of college to intern with Lava Mae, an organization that provides mobile showers to people moving in and out of homelessness in the city.
“I’ve done this same cohort in San Francisco… I loved the physical aspect of it. Being somewhere, and having to really put in the work. I also love meeting people all the time!
With Habitat for Humanity, they have construction sites and the ReStore… it’s really fun. I get to move furniture and meet people every single day— I also meet a lot of residents, so it’s pretty cool that they matched me with exactly what I was interested in.”
Habitat for Humanity offers a wide variety of ways to get involved. Sabyne volunteered in each of our departments that focus on different areas of each of our programs. She had the chance to see the diversity of how we empower Philadelphians to build strength, stability, and self-reliance through shelter.
