Featuring interns: Nathan McIvor and Anthony Inhorn at Volunteer Maine

Each year the Maine Government Summer Internship Program is pleased to place interns in a variety of state agencies and municipalities, some more well-known than others. This year Volunteer Maine hosted two of our interns, which in turn allowed us to learn more about what they do at Volunteer Maine.

Anthony Inhorn, a Political Science major at Northwestern University from Cape Elizabeth, ME, was a research intern with Volunteer Maine. Anthony spent the summer researching and preparing a report for Volunteer Maine Commissioners that provides recommendations on funding priorities for 2021-2026. Anthony presented his finding to Commissioners at the conclusion of his internship.

Nathan McIvor, an English major at UMaine Farmington from Jefferson, ME, was a Volunteer Maine public affairs associate. Nathan spent the summer supporting the communications officer as well as the Volunteer Maine Communications Task Force, made up of 5 Commissioners. Nathan took the lead on social media efforts this summer by creating copy and utilizing graphic design skills, producing two publications. He worked on website updates and produced and distributed press releases.

Volunteer Maine is the state service commission whose mission is to foster and inspire community service and volunteerism in Maine. It develops Maine’s volunteer and service communities by funding programs, training managers of volunteers, raising awareness, and promoting service as a strategy. The Volunteer Maine website is a great resource for someone looking to volunteer or an organization looking to develop volunteerism.

Volunteer Maine tells us that Tony and Nathan were a great fit for their team!
