Dear Mr./Mrs (name),

Thank you so much for the opportunity to intern at the Sunshine Home.

It was a wonderful experience and made me even more confident that I would like to pursue a career in helping at-risk teenagers.

Over the course of the internship, I was able to spend many hours with each resident listening to them, and talking with them about their goals and plans for the future. It was incredibly rewarding to be able to help them focus and make plans when so many of them started out without much hope.

Your advice and experience has been tremendously helpful throughout these past six months.

I truly appreciate the confidence you showed in me by giving me this internship. I hope that after graduation, I might be able to speak with you about pursuing a career in social work.

Best Regards,

Your Signature (hard copy letter)
