As we get ready for #CRSFcamp and dig our sandals out of the backs of our closets, summer also means that our team gets a little bigger temporarily with the addition of future life coaches interning with us this summer. Meet our awesome summer interns and learn more about them in their own words!
My name is Amanda Borucki and I am a programming intern for the Cal Ripken, Sr. Foundation. I am a graduate of Gettysburg College with a major in Spanish and a minor in Art Studio. I was a member of the women’s lacrosse team while being named captain for my senior year. My passion for sports has led me to form a coaching mindset and I hope to better my coaching skills as an intern for the CRSF. I studied abroad for a semester in Salamanca, Spain, and have taken an immersion trip to Nicaragua to further my Spanish skills. I believe that you need to immerse yourself in a new culture in order to learn a new language. By using my experience with working as a team, with my passion for sports, and immersing myself into different cultures, I hope to learn more about the work that goes on behind the scenes and the culture of CRSF that helps inspire kids across the world to be all that they can be.
My name is Patrick Coan and I will be a senior at Springfield College. I am majoring in Criminal Justice and play baseball at school. I am excited to be a programming intern here at the Cal Ripken, Sr. Foundation and am looking forward to all of the opportunities and events we will take part in over the course of the summer. I’m excited to learn more about working with youth and everything else the foundation is involved with.
My name is Heather Group, I am a graduate from Salisbury University, where I earned my Bachelor's of Science in Marketing while playing on the women's soccer team. The opportunity to be an intern at the Cal Ripken, Sr. Foundation opens the doors for what I hope to pursue in my future. I am looking forward to gaining insight and experience in programing for nonprofits while being able to share my love and passion for sports with kids around America.
My name is Zachary Rowe and I am a rising senior at St. Mary’s College of Maryland. I play baseball at St. Mary’s and am studying to graduate with an economics degree. I have been familiar with the Cal Ripken, Sr. Foundation for a few years from working the camps in Aberdeen, MD as a coach. I always loved working the camp and helping all the kids the foundation invites from all over the country. I am excited to have the opportunity to experience the Foundation from a different point of view than I have had before.
