A position that makes a direct impact in poverty alleviation, interested in how education and volunteerism can reach this goal. Looking to relocate to Houston, Austin, Seattle, New Orleans, Denver or wherever a great opportunity presents itself.
I am currently completing a 2 year AmeriCorps term at LIFT as a Site Coordinator/AmeriCorps*National Direct in LIFT-Chicago's Uptown Office gaining experience in non-profit, for-impact work. I have committed my enthusiasm to and developed a strong skill set in direct client service, volunteer management, program development, training, non-profit site management and the social service industry. Following my term's end in July 2012, I hope to continue to expand on my work at LIFT by working for an organization implementing innovative strategies for poverty alleviation.
all individuals have equal opportunities to obtain basic services, secure safe and stable housing, find meaningful employment and pursue their educational goals.
