I’m Annie Huynh and I will be starting my second year at Mount Holyoke College. I’m currently at United Neighborhood Houses as a Summer Youth Employment Program Participant for the summer of 2017. I am at UNH because I love being able to contribute to the community and improve lives. I was never quite knowledgeable about advocacy and policy and UNH provided the opportunity for me to gain an insight on just some of the things that are done. Being able to be a part of UNH this summer was a learning experience. Throughout the 6 weeks here, I’ve attended various meetings with the UNH staff and with youth services providers. I’ve also participated in the Advocacy Institute trainings which were so informational and taught me a lot about advocacy and policy. There was so much that I didn’t know, and having the opportunity to learn was rewarding. While in the office, I’ve worked on creating spreadsheets and several projects such as inputting Voter Contact Information, researching the City Councils who are running for each District, and organizing the questions posed by and responses from Settlement Houses Members.  

UNH wishes Annie the best of luck!
