- Internal (archaic)
- To confine
- A student or recent graduate who works for a period of time at a job in order to get experience.
Contrary to the archaic meaning of the word, the first reason is to be "less internal." One great way for Family Development to grow and learn is through expanding our partnership with interns. Interns will come to us with new ideas, new ways of doing things, and new knowledge to challenge us and stretch us. I use the word "partnership" boldly — while interns learn from us through work opportunities, we also learn from them. Otherwise, the internship program would not be successful.
