Meet Our Summer Interns!

The Corps Network is pleased to announce the arrival of our summer interns! We are very excited that both Bobby and Judith have joined us to offer their help. Please join us in welcoming them, and read more about them below.

Bobby Tillett

Prior to interning at the Corps Network, Bobby completed two AmeriCorps terms-of-service working with the Montana Conservation Corps as both a Field Crew Member and a Field Crew Leader. The experiences and people Bobby met during his terms-of-service are the main inspiration behind his further interest in advocating for our nation’s Service and Conservation Corps. He graduated with a B.A. in International Affairs from the University of Mary Washington and is looking to further his education in the near future. Bobby is a native Virginian, who enjoys backpacking, running and anything related to DC sports franchises.

Judith Rontal

Judith joined The Corps Network for the summer of 2014 to be the Communications and Membership Intern. Prior to joining the team, Judith has held previous communication internships with the Ann Arbor / Ypsilanti Regional Chamber of Commerce and with the Human Rights Ordinance Campaign: One Royal Oak. All throughout her high school and college years Judith has been involved with youth development programs, such as tutoring inside local schools, working as a camp counselor, and teaching English during her semester abroad in Italy.

Judith’s passion for youth development is combined with an interest in conservation, which she developed while spending a month in Kenya doing independent research on the conflict-ridden relationship between the indigenous pastoralists and the protected national reserves. She is excited to leave the cold of Michigan after recently graduating from the University of Michigan to get a fresh start in DC! When not at TCN offices, Judith can either be found running through the streets of DC or baking cookies at home.
