Working for UNRWA
Meet SIT Alumna Meg Audette
My SIT experience gave me the tools that I needed for a successful career in development.
Before going to SIT, I got a taste of development work through domestic and international volunteer opportunities. While I loved what I was doing, I didn’t have the right skill sets to contribute as a professional on high-impact projects. I selected SIT because I thought that praxis-based experiential learning would help me not just understand the theory of development, but what I, as a practitioner, needed to know to be a positive force for change.
SIT exceeded my wildest expectations. Both through my time on campus and during my practicum I worked on actual proposals and strategic plans, and learned a tremendous amount about intercultural communication and teamwork. My SIT experience gave me the tools that I needed for a successful career in development. I still use many of the approaches and resources I learned through the program.
