Sullivan 180 interns at work making a difference in the community

LIBERTY: The Sullivan 180 Interns for the class of 2024 have started tending to gardens and other public areas in Sullivan County towns. Interns are collaborating with volunteers to improve parks, Main Streets, tiny planters, and established gardens, among other aspects of their communities.

The internship program is a fantastic way to meet new people and learn about Sullivan County in addition to fostering relationships with peers, according to Anne-Louise Scandariato, Sullivan 180’s director of community engagement. While working in a team, interns hone their interpersonal, leadership, problem-solving, and communication abilities.

The Sullivan 180 Interns for 2024 are:

  • Aleyna Galvin-Bliefernich Town of Highland
  • Kaelyn Perry Livingston Manor Renaissance
  • Mason Succi Town of Lumberland Parks and Recreation
  • Howard Kiefer Town of Bethel
  • Konnar Williams Town of Liberty
  • Olivia Tyler Town of Thompson
  • Allison Weinstein Village of Woodridge

Additionally, interns take part in weekly sessions where they meet with local leaders, talk about current issues, practice leadership, and consider career alternatives. They will select, organize, and carry out a service-learning project together.

The goal of the Sullivan 180 Internship Program is to involve 16 to 20-year-old Sullivan County students in the effort to transform and mold their communities’ futures. Projects supported by Sullivan 180 are given extra assistance through this initiative, and a young person in the community is mentored by adult volunteers.
