Thoughts From an Internship with Group Works

Hi there, my name is Wesley – I’m a Masters student in Nonprofit Management and Conflict Resolution at the University of Oregon. For the last few months, I’ve been working with the core team as the first-ever intern for the Group Pattern Language Project.

I’ve helped out with several projects; including working with the team as we found a new distributor, and Distilling a master list of workshop segments. I also have been sitting in on meetings of the core team - mostly Listening, but I also share some thoughts on nonprofit life stages. My final official role as intern was helping out at the recent workshop in Seattle, and co-facilitating during the games night there. Overall it’s been a great experience, and you can read more on my internship blog at

I’ve been very impressed with the core team and the wider Group Works community – you all have my Appreciation for what you’ve done to bring this awesome deck into the world! And, if there's anyone else who might be interested in doing an internship with the project, feel free to reach out to me or to one of the members of the core team - there's always lots of work to be done!

Best Wishes,
