Amy Petty, spokesman for Warrenton’s PATH Foundation, announced that PATH has welcomed 12 new interns to its summer internship program, which runs June 3 to August 2.

The interns will help the foundation in its mission to strengthen the overall health and vitality of Fauquier, Rappahannock and northern Culpeper communities. Interns were selected based on their academic success, majors and past work experience, she said. 

Each intern has been placed either within the PATH Foundation itself or with area organizations that support work consistent with the foundation’s efforts.  In addition to the PATH Foundation and PATH Resource Center, organizations hosting interns include: The Clifton Institute, Northern Piedmont Community Foundation, Fauquier County Public Schools’ Virginia Preschool Initiative, Aging Together, Fauquier Excellence in Education Foundation, Rappahannock-Rapidan Health District, Rappahannock County Public Schools’ Commit to be Fit program, Fauquier Reaches for Excellence in School Health, the Warrenton Aquatic Recreation and Fitness Center and the Mental Health Association of Fauquier County. 

The internships provided by the PATH Foundation allow college students to have an impact on their local community and to gain experience in their fields of interest, said Petty. 

“Each intern resides within the PATH Foundation service area, yet their diversified backgrounds and life experiences help to bring new ideas to the foundation,” she added. 

“We’ve found this program to be extremely valuable, both to the students and to the organizations they serve,” said Christy Connolly, president and CEO of the PATH Foundation. “Each year, the combination of our interns’ diverse talents and unique experiences with their host organizations creates a meaningful experience that will serve our interns well as they prepare to begin their careers.”
