I started working at the Real Life Center in 2011 as an assistant to the Executive Director. I have sense expanded my role into a Project Manager over seeing all of the IT projects at the center as well as making sure the Executive Director is kept happy and does not have to worry about Admin stuff.

I have referred several people to the center as well as, watched first hand the life changing experience the center has on people.

Ways to make it better...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

better technology, written standard operating procedures, video in the lobby for clients, training videos for volunteers, and expansion into other counties.

What one change could this group make that would improve your volunteer experience?

This group does so much right, this one is hard. I would say make it easier for me to sign-up to volunteer and track my hours online and communicate with other volunteers.

Did your volunteer experience have an effect on you? (teaching you a new skill, or introducing new friends, etc.)

Coming from a technology background we are all about the processes and working at the Real Life Center taught me about how important people are and that you can never go wrong when you take time to invest in those around you. I also learned that when a community comes together to help their neighbor it is powerful.

How did this volunteer experience make you feel?

I love working at the Real Life Center. I feel like they really care about their volunteers and go out of their way to appreciate them.

MY ROLE:
Volunteer & I handled all of the Admin work for the Executive Director: newsletters, annual reports, social media campaigns, awards, and also served as the IT Project Manager overseeing all IT projects at the center.
