Junior Lauren Novsak has filled us in on her amazing summer opportunities. As a Walter Sondheim Jr. Maryland Nonprofit Leadership Fellow, Lauren's placement is at the Living Classrooms Foundation in Baltimore. There, she promotes the work being accomplished by the third through eighth grade students whom the organization serves. Her tasks include organizing and planning community events with partners, meeting with the members of the Southeast Youth Collaborative, planning and promoting events for the YouthWorks program, and assisting the summer camp staff with field trip planning.
As a leadership fellow, Lauren is provided with an opportunity to build valuable skills, explore career choices within the nonprofit sector, attend various seminars on nonprofits, leadership development, and creating social change, and network with Maryland's leaders.
Congratulations, Lauren! We are so proud of you!
