In the summer of 2010, Kyle Miller accepted an internship with Charis Community Housing in Atlanta, Georgia, a Christian community development ministry that works with disenfranchised neighborhoods to restore wholesome, viable, self-sustaining, mixed income housing.
When reflecting on his responsibilities, Miller said, “My manager allowed me to float throughout the organization so I could experience all the aspects of the business. My responsibilities or projects involved creating bidding contracts for general contractors. I also created a new homeowner’s manual and photo documentation for the city of Atlanta historic board. It definitely confirmed that my passions are taking me to the non-profit world, but it also showed me that in order to succeed in the non-profit world I need to really work on developing strong for-profit business skills as well.”
The Enterprise Resource Center played a major role in Miller’s internship. He describes its involvement: “What the ERC does is provide the framework for discovering and pursuing your career goals. They also offer the tools and the advice for taking the first step. I would definitely recommend the ERC.”
