“Before learning about HALO, I had done some volunteering and really enjoyed it. I truly enjoy helping people, and once I knew what HALO was all about, I knew I wanted an opportunity to learn more, and to do something that would be helpful and give me the opportunity to learn more about how non-profits work. Since joining the HALO team in May, I’ve learned a lot. The most amazing thing is just how many people in the community want to help in some way. I’ve also learned that even the smallest task can help in the long run, and that working with a team gives the chance to learn from a lot of other people. What I love about HALO is that everyone has the same goal – to help homeless and at-risk youth, and that every member of the team is so willing to help me learn and to include me in all of the amazing activities.”
Event Planning Intern
Event Planning & Marketing Intern
“HALO has given me the opportunity to see what it’s like volunteering for a non-profit organization! I get to work with people who share the same passion as I do to help people everyday that are in need. Being an intern at HALO, I get to work directly with children, assist with planning fundraising events, and gain professional experience. I’m so thankful that I get to be part of the HALO team and I look forward to helping improve the lives of children across the world.”

“I took the internship with HALO because I want to feel like I am making a difference in the world. There is too much bad out there, so I want to contribute to the good. The HALO Foundation does that.”
Junior Uganda Intern
“The reason I want to work with HALO is because I want to be a part of the great team here in Uganda that is changing people’s lives. I want to use the abilities I have and also be a part of changing lives.”
“I chose to intern with HALO because I felt a connection with their mission and what they for do youth here in KC and across the world. It feels good to come to work and know that what I do ultimately helps provide love to children who need it the most.”
Office Administration and Accounting Intern
“Working for HALO means having the opportunity to be a part of a family- a family that provides to children in need through a variety of outlets- housing, education, art therapy, and simply love. I am excited for my journey here at HALO to be a part of this life and love giving organization.”
“I chose to intern with the HALO foundation in Kansas City because of how much passion the organization radiates, and how that passion aligned with mine. As a community health major I identify strongly with HALO’s mission to prevent one more child from being alone one more day. The support and education HALO gives the youth in its community is incredibly touching and inspiring. I wanted to put my time and care into an organization that is making a real difference in the lives of those who need it most. HALO is doing that and more with the simple but profound mindset that love heals.”
“I wanted to intern at HALO because it is a great opportunity to help children in need while learning about the inner-workings of a nonprofit organization. HALO has a very supportive and positive work environment, and is full of women who are all passionate about what they do and the mission. Part of HALO’s mission is to empower youth, and I know that both HALO’s team and mission empower me to learn and strive to make a difference in the world.”
Public Relations Intern
“HALO offers what I’m looking for: Something different every day and a purpose. You can earn a paycheck anywhere, but not every job has purpose like HALO does. There are so many innocent children born into hopeless situations – they deserve the chance to have a good life like many of us, and I’m glad I can be a small part in helping them get there.”
Public Relations Intern
“I knew I wanted to use my ability to write and desire to tell stories in a way that would make a positive impact on my community and interning with HALO allows me to do just that. There is nothing more rewarding than knowing my work will help improve the lives of children not only locally but all over the world. I have met some of the most inspiring women through HALO and I am so thankful for the opportunity to gain career experience while making a difference.”
“I chose HALO because it closely relates to the values and philosophies I have about life and second chances. Often times we make mistakes and there is no one to pick us up. HALO serves as a set of open arms for those who have fallen and need to be reminded that it’s okay to fall as long as you get back up.”
“I chose HALO because I love the mission of the foundation and it’s similar to what I want to do with my future career. I am glad HALO is giving me the opportunity to help make a change and redirect our youth in our community. I hope to empower them and be a positive example in their lives.”
