Words from one of our First Interns…

Lately I have been thinking a lot about my summer in Pittsburgh and I wanted to let you know that Assemble truly made my experience there. Without Assemble, I would never have been able to see, or probably ever even have found out about all of the awesome art in Pittsburgh. You helped me to understand the importance of community and showed me that art can bring people together in an extremely powerful way. You are an inspiration to me and I want to thank you for giving me the opportunity to work with you and the Garfield community! One day I want to start a non-profit like Assemble!! For now though, I need to figure out what I am going to do after graduation in May. I have been looking into a bunch of opportunities with Americorps, specifically the City Year Corps. I don’t know if you have ever heard of this program but if I am accepted, I will be working as a tutor/mentor for students (hopefully at a school in San Jose) and engaging in service projects in the community.
