Intern Poster Project

This summer, Alex and Talia interned at BLAAC through UF’s Active Learning Program. At the end of their program they created a poster presentation highlighting what they worked on. The interns helped with events, created a newsletter, applied for grants, and created graphics. However, the culmination of their internship experience was the Envision the Future Event that they planed from start to finish.
