This month, three guest speakers were invited to share with us how they contribute to the community through their career.
-Jessica Miller, a former Team Leader talked about her work with Synergy. Synergy is a non-profit organization that aids people of all ages living in unsafe environments. Jessica works with teenagers in their transitional living program. Community service has helped Jessica get to where she is now, after Synergy, she plans to become a High school enlish teacher in the inter city.
-Andy Wheeler also talked to us about all the AMAZING things the salvation army does for the community. Last year the salvation army collected 1.7 million dollars!
-Amy Winterscheidt (my mom!) also came to talk to us about corporate philanthropy. Amy works for Hallmark, a company that believes it owes the community. Hallmark does a lot for the community, anything from giving money to sending out their employees to volunteer. Amy is in charge of organizing a lot of the philanthropy Hallmark does.
I would like to thank all of the guest speakers for not only taking time out of their Saturday to talk to us, but also for all the amazing contributions they have given to our community. It's truly inspiring to get the chance to meet so many people who have done wonderful things with their career.
For our icebreaker, YABers discovered they knew quite a bit about each other.
We got a few free t-shirts too... It was pretty cool!
