Dear Ms. Chun:
I am excited to apply for the Program Lead internship with Cross Cultural
Community Service Center. After reading the internship description on Santa
Clara University’s BroncoLink, I knew immediately that the position and your
organization would be an excellent fit with my interests and experiences. I am
particularly impressed with your 17-year history of serving diverse families and
children in need in Silicon Valley.
I bring significant experience working with children in a variety of settings,
including mentoring, classroom instruction, and tutoring. For example, while
working as a camp counselor for Sacred Heart Nativity School, I was responsible
for supervising and leading activities for groups of 15 boys, ranging in ages from
12-14 years old. I developed skills in conflict resolution and classroom
management, and I learned how to develop engaging activities which responded
to a variety of learning styles. I am particularly proud of my experiences as a
camp counselor because the mentoring relationships I developed with some of
the students have continued beyond that summer.
I am confident that my communication and teamwork skills would be an asset to
this internship. I recently volunteered in Mexico where I worked with a team of
five to provide presentations to community members to promote small business
opportunities. My supervisor commented on my ability to present information
clearly and engage the audience in discussion during the presentations.
I appreciate your time and consideration and I look forward to further discussing
my qualifications at your convenience.
