School is out for the summer, but University of Michigan junior Ranjana Angamuthu isn’t taking a break from learning. As part of the university’s Student Development Summer Internship Program, Ranjana is learning what goes on behind the scenes of a successful nonprofit like YMOW.
A business major who is working toward a minor in entrepreneurship and statistics, Ranjana has a keen interest in the work of non-profits. After completing internships in human resources and communications with other organizations, she is focusing on development during her summer with YMOW.
Ranjana will work with Development Manager Madison to plan a series of summer events designed to raise awareness and money for YMOW, including fundraisers for the YMOW pet support program and Personal Care Pantry.
“Those are the two events that I’m spearheading,” she said.
She also will help with other events, including the food truck event planned for August.
While much of Ranjana’s work will be done remotely, she enjoyed the chance to deliver meals to YMOW clients and will spend Tuesdays working with Madison in the YMOW office.
Ranjana’s love of learning doesn’t end in the classroom or even in her internships. This summer she hopes to add several Indian dishes to her cooking repertoire.
When she’s not working or studying, Ranjana enjoys being outside, going for walks and working out.
