Empowering Tomorrow's Leaders: The Take Stock in Children Manatee County Experience

Posted on April 18, 2024 by Dr. Michael Higley, Take Stock in Children of Manatee County
In the ever-evolving landscape of contemporary organizations, the infusion of fresh perspectives and innovative ideas is paramount. The recent journey of Manal Alshiekh, one of our interns with Take Stock in Children Manatee County, made possible through The Patterson Foundation's Nonprofit Internship Program, stands as a testament to the transformative power of including young talent in shaping the future of our organization.

Throughout her internship, Manal explored the field of social media marketing, contributing to a cause with a mission of providing educational opportunities to deserving students. This experience was nothing short of transformative, providing Manal with opportunities to hone skills, face challenges head-on, and witness the profound impact of collective efforts.

Manal's internship primarily focused on social media marketing, where she passionately embraced storytelling to amplify Take Stock in Children Manatee County's mission. She created engaging content, from eye-catching flyers to compelling videos, to capture the essence of our mission and resonate with the audience.

During Giving Tuesday in November, Manal's strategic navigation of platforms such as Instagram, Facebook, LinkedIn, and Twitter was crucial in spreading awareness of the Take Stock in Children's mission. The power of social media became evident as it fostered meaningful connections, sparked conversations about education, and inspired others to join our cause during this important fundraising event.

However, the true measure of success lay in Manal's ability to translate online engagement into tangible support. Her strategic calls to action and the power of storytelling contributed to a notable increase in donations—a remarkable accomplishment that highlights the impact of effective social media marketing, especially during critical events like Giving Tuesday.

Take Stock in Children Manatee County expresses gratitude for the valuable collaboration with The Patterson Foundation and the opportunity to work alongside Manal Alshiekh, an exceptional intern. This experience has significantly enriched our social media needs and reinforced the importance of nurturing young talent for organizational growth and societal impact.
