We kicked off our weekly staff check-in meeting here at TCC last Tuesday by talking about everything we are looking forward to this Fall- programs and events we are working on and eager to attend, books we are reading, and personal and professional projects we have been excited to see come to fruition this year.
See below for our exclusive (insert audience laughter), behind-the-scenes answers:
These are a few of our (intern's) favorite things:
Ashlynn, Programs Intern: Apple picking! Who doesn't love apples? I also love Wednesdays at TCC because we get to watch movies, stay in on chilly nights, and my Nerd Night group meets on Wednesdays too!
Marlee, Service Coordination Intern (Sacred Heart University): I’m excited to engage with people at the Out of the Darkness Walk in Westport. I think that’s a great cause.
Shawnee, MSW Intern (Fordham University): Definitely our upcoming Halloween-themed projects in Coffee Talk. I loved painting pumpkins, but that definitely isn’t enough. Go big or go home!
Katelyn, Program Coordinator: Well, I'm eager to make our Bridgeport programming come to fruition, jump back into the Holiday Give Back Program to make it bigger and better than in 2015. Also, now that our gala work is coming to a close, I'm excited to collaborate with the amazing people who have reached out to build out the editorial board for CT Pride Voices! I also spend every Fall re-watching Buffy the Vampire Slayer in its entirety. Yes, even the college years! Also, I'm hoping to spend some time exploring the Beinecke Library since it just re-opened, and I live two blocks away from it!
Amy, Service Coordinator: I’m really going to focus on connecting with local organizations, especially in Bridgeport, to let people know we are here! I’d love to see us connect face-to-face with lots of new people and clients this Fall by tabling at new places and events!
Conor, Director of Operations: Besides working on some really exciting donor appreciation events that are still under wraps, I've been reading a couple of great books. Gay Berlin is great for history nerds- especially gay history nerds! It looks at Berlin's role in shaping modern understandings of sexuality and gender.
Anthony, Executive Director: Well, I've been preparing for months for the SoNo Half-Marathon and 5K with Team TCC. So, I'm definitely looking forward to the race. I've also been reading Christopher and His Kind in my spare time.
