What better way is there to gain first-hand experience of working in the real world, than to complete an internship? JEVS Human Services would like to give its sincerest thanks to Frank Ash, the Lasko Family Foundation and the many other generous supporters of our Franklin C. Ash Summer Internship Program and Lasko College Prep Program. We are so appreciative for all that these groups have done for the 14 Ash Interns, 1 Brandeis Law Society Fellow, and 20 Lasko Interns whom we’ve hosted over the past two months. These programs not only expose students to the workforce, they also provide them the opportunity to practice Jewish values through volunteer opportunities and mitzvah projects throughout the Philadelphia region. This summer has provided the interns with valuable lessons and relationships we are sure they will carry with them into their next steps.
