My internship at African Community Education (ACE) took place from May to December 2015, where I worked with GISDE alum, Joshua Plisinski. My summer was split as a volunteer at ACE and GIS Analyst in partnership with a Worcester nonprofit Cultural Exchange Through Soccer (CETS). My duties at ACE included tutoring, mentoring, and leading the students in homework assignments and various recreational activities. I also completed several GIS tasks and instructed a GIS tutorial for the high school students of ACE. The other time during my summer was spent conducting a spatial network analysis of Worcester soccer fields for CETS and presenting my final aggregated report at Worcester City Hall to the Parks, Recreation, and Cemetery Division. The purpose of that report is to locate strategic areas in need of additional funds for the construction of proposed fields and improving existing fields. This internship report details the aim of ACE, the specific tasks conducted as a volunteer, and a review of the network analysis presented to the city of Worcester.
