“My favorite part of my internship at the Y is doing admin prep work like cleaning the weights, the weight machines, and balls. I also help with packing up the tumbling mats on Tuesday/Thursday mornings. I enjoy also doing office supplies with my hand, for example sorting out coloring sheets for the membership team and organizing schedules/membership cards for new members/current members.”
