Sweat Free Houston is a great organization to do an internship with. I came upon the organization through my ethics project on sweatshops and labor related issues. When I first came to volunteer I had no idea of what a sweatshop was or how it functioned. Throughout my internship I became knowledgeable of several labor issues through research, communicating with different organizations and creating several documents related to sweatshops. The sweat free ordinance in hand also was a great resource on what issues sweatshops create and how to improve conditions. Sweat Free Houston has given me an opportunity to learn more about an ethics related problem and gain a deeper insight of sweatshops. I improved my critical thinking skills and public speaking, I highly recommend volunteering, you will receive valuable information and a grand experience.
