(3/4) Meet Noor, an AmeriCorps VISTA volunteer here at LEO! Noor grew up in Beirut, Lebanon and came to the US at 18 years old to study Business and Entrepreneurship at Babson College. Noor is our Volunteer and Engagement Coordinator, involved in projects like; Census outreach, COVID education, researching and writing the Community Assessment and Strategic Plan. She loves project based work and values the culture of collaboration. Being from a minority culture, Noor sees strength in Lynn’s diversity and feels compelled to uplift the different communities that make up Lynn. #NationalVolunteerWeek#LeoLoves#Noor
In honor of #NationalVolunteerWeek we would like to introduce four very special women who are dedicating a year of service to LEO though the AmeriCorps VISTA program. They are intelligent, intuitive, and invested. WE are GRATEFUL.
(2/4) Meet Carolyn! Carolyn is a graduate of Albright College, Reading PA., where she double majored in Sociology and Anthropology. She serves as the Development and Communications Coordinator at LEO. Carolyn focuses on social research, community outreach, and grant writing. During her service, Carolyn has learned there are many different avenues that can be taken to support others. There are no short-term solutions, but even a seemingly “small” idea can make a large impact. #LEOlovesCarolyn#service#grateful
