Join Our Internship Program!

The Alisa Ann Ruch Burn Foundation (AARBF)’s Interns work with the Regional Managers/Development Manager to assist with daily operations of AARBF. These operations are focused, but not limited to, assisting in Survivor Services programming, burn prevention through education, and donation/ fundraising efforts. In addition, Interns assist with administrative tasks, database maintenance, and community networking. The AARBF Intern position gives individuals the opportunity to gain hands-on experience in the workplace and interns will develop administrative skills and gain greater insight to the nonprofit industry and operations of a burn foundation. 

Meet Our Cohort 2 Interns

Cameron Wilt - Central Region

Cameron is striving to be a firefighter in the Central Valley. He came in touch with the AARBF through the Fresno City College Fire Academy where he is currently the Vice President of class 57 and has had the privilege of bringing awareness and fundraising for the AARBF. Before Cameron is in the field fighting and helping with EMS, he wanted to come full circle with his future career and continue his efforts in burn prevention. He hopes to learn more of how people are affected by fire and how to help, not just with burn prevention, but how to help support those who have succumbed to injury or loss of property due to fire. A fun fact about Cameron is that he has raced sprint cars and currently enjoys road racing Camaros at raceways up and down California! Cameron is looking forward to this opportunity AARBF has given him and wants to exceed all expectations to give back as much as he plans to learn from the organization.

Lexie Khounphithack - Northern Region

Lexie has been with the foundation since 2016. This is her second internship. She felt that it was important to participate in another round because there is so much more she wishes to accomplish. Lexie became an intern because she wants to give back her time and all of the hours the staff has spent working towards the events and supporting the survivors. Lexie stated, “I truly cannot wait to be the Northern California Survivor Services Intern and to be working alongside the amazing Scott.”

Priscilla Aviles - Southern Region

Priscilla is very excited to be a part of this internship program, working out of the Southern California office. The thing that motivates her is change. When she has been through something, may it be positive or negative, she always wants to make the necessary change for the better. Priscilla is a burn survivor, and is happy to have found the Alisa Ann Ruch Burn Foundation.
