Student Success Story: Mary Keating

My experience with the Urban Fellows Program has been a great one! I was encouraged to seek more information by Elaine, the Founder/Executive Director of TLT- Tomorrow’s Leaders Today, and I’m so glad I did! Brookelyn with Urban Fellows was incredibly helpful with getting me all set up for the program and answered all of my questions thoroughly. She stayed as my point of contact throughout the experience, and always made me feel welcome. This program allowed me to focus on my internship as well as my studies by reducing the financial stress that I’m sure a lot of students can relate to. I started with TLT- Tomorrow’s Leaders Today in the Fall of 2020 as a business services intern. I have since stayed with this nonprofit through not only the Winter 2020 session and the Spring 2021 session, but now continuing through the Summer 2021 session because I simply love the experience I’m getting. TLT- Tomorrow’s Leaders Today allows its interns to have flexibility in their scheduling and in their projects. Through this internship, I have gained valuable skills and first-hand experience with things like budgets, expense records, auditing, creating presentations, and board meetings. I have also obtained experience with different programs like Quickbooks and Bloomerang. Overall, I highly recommend other students to not only check out TLT- Tomorrow’s Leaders Today but also encourage them to reach out to the Urban Fellows Program.
