In 2009 Edify's Short Term Mission Program (STUMP) brought passionate youth into urban environments to learn from and serve their community. Facing homelessness, drug abuse and mental health issues the one week intensive opened their eyes to the realities of city based social work. Addressing the need to provide further means of engagement after the Stump week, the Edify Internship and Cert IV in Youth Work were created.

Charlotte was one of three accepted into the initial year of the Internship and Cert IV program in 2010. This is her story.
