Positive Internship Experience

Former Employee - Volunteer Coordinator Intern
Former Employee - Volunteer Coordinator Intern

I worked at Denver Rescue Mission as an intern (less than an year)

Pros

Staff are very interested in the mission of the organization; great opportunities for serving the community; interns get to experience a lot of the company; the large intern class allows for interns to see other possible career paths or experiences

Cons

Little intellectual challenge for most position--although that's not the purpose of the company, positive philosophy sometimes doesn't mesh with reality

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Consider the tangible effects of policies (e.g. smoking ban) on serving the greater mission of DRM.

    I have been working at Denver Rescue Mission full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    The people that actually work here to make a difference (ultimately they end up disillusioned)

    Cons

    Everything. This place has a horrible culture of people that are so much more concerned with their own well-being that they make jokes (company-wide) about the people they assist. I've seen emails passed around that poke fun at some of these situations. Understandably, they are a "Christian" organization, but they are so far to the left that its impossible to believe they actually care. People in the rehabilitation programs are used as free labor, and numbers are miscalculated on their annual reports, misrepresenting their Gift In Kind hours from volunteers. Upper management is full of people that have never been anywhere near the situations of their clients, and everyone has a "holier than thou" attitude.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Resign and let some individuals that really care take over.

    Doesn't Recommend
    Neutral Outlook
    Disapproves of CEO
