Introducing the 2017-18 MSW Intern


Rachel Lundberg graduated from Appalachian State University last December 2016 with a bachelor’s degree in psychology with a concentration in human services and a social work minor. She moved back to the Cary area and is now attending North Carolina State University to earn her master’s degree in social work.

In her free time she loves to paint, travel, read, cook and spend time with friends and family. Lundberg said the sheer age range of students PYO works with has been impressive.

“I have never been at a non-profit organization that strives to get at-risk students through so many different stages of their lives, middle school, high school and college,” she said. “The financial literacy is also an important component because most students go into college not even knowing how to set up a savings account or how to set aside money from paychecks every month.”

Lundberg said overall PYO is a good fit for her because she can bring what she is currently learning in MSW courses and apply it to students. In return, PYO can teach her how non-profit organizations operate. Although she has volunteered with non-profits before, she has not been able to see or have a part in the process of making it function.

“I think even if I want to become a Licensed Clinical Social Worker and work in a more clinical setting, I still need to understand how to identify the pros and cons of non-profits in order to effectively provide my clients resources for help,” she said.
