Our students are hard at work securing their summer internships, but some students have also secured part-time internships during the winter and spring quarters as well. Case-in-point is Kaitlin Very, who earned her undergraduate degree from Northwestern in Music in 2011.
Kaitlin is interning for Genesis at the Crossroads, a Chicago-based nonprofit organization led by Wendy Sternberg. Genesis focuses on art-based global peace building and conflict resolution, working across the world for the past 15 years, and has partnered with such organizations as the Kennedy Center, the Chicago Children’s Museum, Rotary International, the US Department of State, and the United Nations.
During her internship, Kaitlin will be organizing a vocal recital that will serve as a fundraising event for Genesis. Seeking Peace: a Musical Revue for Global Empathy will take place on Sunday, March 8, 2015 at 2:00PM at the First Presbyterian Church of Lake Forest and will feature music that highlights the major goals of Genesis.
Kaitlin will be the vocalist for the event, joined by pianist Jason Carlson, as well as by the members of the Sanctuary Choir of the First Presbyterian Church of Lake Forest. All proceeds will benefit Genesis at the Crossroads. To RSVP, email firstname.lastname@example.org. Suggested tax-deductible donations are $35 in advance or $45 at the door and can be made to gatc.org.
