ACOSVO's American summer intern Gretchen Rude shares her experience...

Over the past 11 weeks I have worked with ACOSVO as an intern. Through the course of the internship I’ve learned loads of new things about the Scottish third sector and Scottish culture. I have gained knowdlege of leadership and experience in growing membership and running events as well as being advised by my peers. I have been able to learn practical office skills such as creating mail merges and mail filing.
