Interning at the Community Harvest Project (CHP)

Interning at the Community Harvest Project (CHP)


Name: Jamie Ballerini

Hometown, State: Somerville, MA

Major: Management

Internship Sponsor: Community Harvest Project (CHP)


Primary Responsibilities:

I am the promotional video intern at the Community Harvest Project (CHP) located in Grafton, MA. My duties include: researching other hunger relief organization’s promotional videos, producing a storyboard for CHP’s promotional video, and working with a CHP volunteer to create the video.


Blog Entry:

Community Harvest Project is a non-profit organization which caters to hunger relief organizations in the Boston area. I have experienced what it is like to work in an all volunteer, non-profit organization. In my Environments of Business class we spend a great deal of time discussing business ethics. CHP proves their admirable ethics by their mission of providing the best vegetation to their consumers.


Last week I viewed the informational video CHP uses for orientation to train their volunteers before they start out in the field or in the greenhouse. This video made me realize the sole purpose of the organization and made me realize that I am committed to working with a hunger relief organization.


As a management major, I have seen the importance of some of the concepts we learn: critical thinking, problem solving, and decision-making. For example, in my research I have had to decide what is the best way to fully exemplify the organization in my video development and production. I have also run into the problem of not being able to include everything I view fit into the 2-3 minute video time constraint. I have to decide which video clips to include in the video.


My internship has been a great experience. It has taught me real life skills which will be beneficial for my career.
