"I most enjoyed getting to work with people and experience being out in the community where lives are being impacted. Right after high school, I wasn’t decided on what I wanted to do with my future. My internship played a part in helping me find my passion, which is people and working with them to help them find a solution for themselves. Because of that I chose to pursue psychology & economics in hopes to one day get involved in policy decisions and continue working with people. My internship has widened my perspective on life and of our country. More than work experience, I've learned so many life values, which will help me in the working world in the future".

What have our interns said about us?
"I had the opportunity to be involved in different programs. The internship has opened my eyes to people’s needs in communities around me. It inspired my decision pursue a career in social welfare – I am now a full time staff at GG. Interning at GG is a unique experience that no other place can offer - the opportunity to serve others and engage with the local communities is invaluable."
"I've gotten to meet people of a variety of backgrounds, upbringings and to be able to impart life, truth, values, and knowledge is extremely satisfying for me. Also, I find that my contributions are useful and appreciated. Time spent interning has definitely been productive and not monotonous. I have also enjoyed being able to help out in various departments. It has really been a complete experience for me. Some skills I have picked up include ‘parachute packing’ and ‘team teaching’– that is to always support each other. I’ve gained confidence to speak up and share whether in staff meetings or facilitating students and more. The positive environment and culture in GG will also help shape us individuals in things such as discovering our purpose, figuring out how to serve and put others before ourselves, and how to be a significant contributor to society."
"Interning at Generasi Gemilang was my first experience with an office job. The opportunity to help out with all the school activities and community projects opened my eyes to a world beyond my own. Especially seeing the lives of those less fortunate, and how it puts into perspectives the blessings that I’ve received. I’d recommend GG as a place for internship because apart from the work experience and professional skills, the uniqueness of the programs and cause builds character and shapes mind-sets"
