Lessons Learned: Notes from a GLIDE Emerging Leaders Intern

  1. Transformation

Looking back, I really had no idea what I was getting myself into.  After reading the job description of interning at our placements 25 hours a week and coming together on Fridays for reflection, I thought to myself, “I can definitely do this.” After 8 weeks of interning here, I would have given my answer a little bit more thought. At GLIDE, we work and get the work done. We serve meals, give out TB tests, facilitate the Women’s Center, listen to residents’ needs and much more.

A Place of Acceptance: Notes from a GLIDE Emerging Leaders Intern

In the months leading up to my summer internship at GLIDE, it seemed that everyone I spoke to knew what type of experience I would have. My teachers, my family, my friends – anyone who knew of GLIDE would say things like, “Life-changing experience,” “Eye-opening,” “Unbelievably loving and accepting atmosphere.” Maybe it was a natural youthful skepticism. Maybe it was doubt from the recent spread of global violence and sadness, and its pervasive accompanying rhetoric. Maybe it was my very own degree of detachment from and fear of these forces. I didn’t believe what everyone seemed to tell me. I had few doubts of the meaningful, needed programs offered by GLIDE, but I had trouble imagining such a community of radical love, acceptance and strength.

Homelessness is a man-made disaster

We San Franciscans are no strangers to tremors. We live in earthquake country. We’ve weathered some major ones, and we continue to prepare for the Big One we all know is coming someday. But let’s ask ourselves: Is the ground not already shaking? Homelessness is a man-made earthquake, a painful and destructive rift in the social contract, and addressing it requires a major relief effort on the part of us all.
