What does your typical workday at NATIFS involve?
Qué implica tu jornada laboral típica en NATIFS?

The beauty of doing project work means that no two days are ever the same! In practice that means I spend most days connecting with co-workers and community partners to scope out and determine next steps on projects, make sure they have the right mixture of structure and resources to do their work, and, of course, find solutions to problems as they arise.
