“My name is Megan Sprague, and I am a senior at William Jewell College studying Psychological Science and Nonprofit Leadership. I am interning with HALO because I really believe in its mission that “Love Heals” and am really passionate about finding creative ways in addressing mental and emotional health.”

“Kids are very near to my heart and it’s evident that HALO feels the same way. Everyone I know who has interned or worked for HALO is full of energy and joy. It seemed like the perfect place to cultivate my passion for youth and the nonprofit sector. I’m so excited to be here and learn from some amazing people!”
