Artists Striving To End Poverty Inc
September 21, 2009
Mary Mitchell Campbell and Michelle Miller worked on a project at Boston College and brought ASTEP to our attention. After knowing about it, the students at Boston College immediately formed a group to create their own student group and expand the work to the Boston area. The ASTEP office has been terrific in providing the information we need to start this chapter and encouraged us wholeheartedly. The students created the official group and are now beginning their outreach to the Boston Community organizations. It is a great program that instills enthusiasm in all who get involved. The organizations who serve the youth are excited that volunteers who are reaching out to them already having a set of skills they find beneficial. Such a program helps both the youth in need and creates an amazing learning opportunity for the students who serve them.
What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...
the ability to use my passion for the arts in a way that benefits the community.
The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...
the kindest and most thoughtful people. They did not think of themselves as stars but thought only of the welfare of others.
If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...
use the arts on a broader scale and involve many more people, empower children, and help fight poverty through education and hope.
