What do interns say about their experience with PJALS? Here’s a testimonial:

A professor once told me that in order to get hired at any job, all one really needs is to be organized, write well, speak well, and be able to work as a team member.  What I got out of PJALS was an introduction to community organizing, the ability to work as an effective team member, I have improved my writing abilities, and I have had enough practice public speaking that it is no longer an issue for me.  I have also been privileged to work on projects with the United Farm Workers, NAACP, the Middle East Children’s Alliance, as well as the local heroes who make up our membership.  Most important for my success was that the people at PJALS do not operate in an authoritarian power structure, and this leads to the empowerment of colleagues and self.  They practice what they advocate. For me, PJALS was not just the best part of the Social Work program at EWU, but also the best part of Spokane.  As I emerge from my internship, I know that I am a better person than when entering.  I feel more confidence in myself, and more prepared for any job.  Choosing PJALS was one of the better decisions I have made, and I would recommend PJALS to all students.

Best of luck PJALS in your auction and your work. I have been very impressed by that you have done and what you are doing. Nobody has even bothered to call us, but you came to Yakima to attend one of our meetings, and that felt so good. Good fortune and peace to all. Can I be an intern from a distance and by email. I can pretty well string words together if that is needed. Larry Breer — Yakima Valley Peace Advocates Network.
