Building a future

Kyle Miller

My responsibilities or projects involved creating bidding contracts for general contractors."

In the summer of 2010, Kyle Miller accepted an internship with Charis Community Housing in Atlanta, Georgia, a Christian community development ministry that works with disenfranchised neighborhoods to restore wholesome, viable, self-sustaining, mixed income housing.

When reflecting on his responsibilities, Miller said, “My manager allowed me to float throughout the organization so I could experience all the aspects of the business. My responsibilities or projects involved creating bidding contracts for general contractors. I also created a new homeowner’s manual and photo documentation for the city of Atlanta historic board. It definitely confirmed that my passions are taking me to the non-profit world, but it also showed me that in order to succeed in the non-profit world I need to really work on developing strong for-profit business skills as well.”

The Enterprise Resource Center played a major role in Miller’s internship. He describes its involvement: “What the ERC does is provide the framework for discovering and pursuing your career goals. They also offer the tools and the advice for taking the first step. I would definitely recommend the ERC.”
