“Volunteering for HAWA was actually a great experience for me. I got to help out at the HAWA booth during the hmong new year. It required me to use my social skills, which has helped me a lot. I have become more outgoing and talkative from that experience.”

INTERNSHIP

If you are interested in becoming an intern, please fill out the forms below and email them to staff@hawamke.org or return them to HAWA Office during working hours.

“One major accomplishment as an intern was working in youth programming. Through this, I was able to lead the Nkauj Hmoob girls in discussions about self-image, sexual assault/violence, and healthy living. Through facilitation, I was able to refine leadership skills, challenge myself in taking initiative, and to not be afraid to voice opinions and questions. It was a humbling experience getting to know and grow closer with the Nkauj Hmoob girls.”
