The internship itself is with Manna, Inc. which is a non-profit in DC similar to Habitat for Humanity, in that they provide housing for low-income families, but in addition to some building and refurbishing, Manna provides lots of Home-ownership courses and such about how to establish good credit, budget and save money, and understand your mortgage. This little explanation has replaced my often repeated "I'm a history major, no I don't know what I'm going to do with that" and "I transferred from a really really small school in NH: Thomas More. You've never heard of it. It's only has about 100 students, yeah it's really really small." explanations which I used to run through with nearly everyone. Of course before that was the "I'm home-schooled, yes to friends, no to pjs, etc" explanation. There's also the more official explanation or Manna and some of their history on their site which I'll link here.

So far the internship is pretty snazzy, I'm enjoying it.
