Review for Unity Performing Arts Foundation Inc, Fort Wayne, IN, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

From the perspective of one of the Organization's newest hires, I am excited about working for this great organization. I recently taught a Junior Achievement class to a group of 7th graders. The lessons are centered around helping student start the critical thinking process for what adulthood will look like financially. The first lesson was about identifying the foundation for your career path: skills, interests and values. The goal is to use those things to structure your path.

As I taught the lesson, I realized that in my current position at Unity Performing Arts Foundation, Inc. as grant writer and copy writer, that I had achieved a trifecta. In my opinion, volunteering is a part of the human experience. UNITY is heavily supported by volunteers and many hands are needed to pull off some of the productions that are dreamed up and executed, so I get plenty of opportunities do something that I find vital in helping tomorrow's leaders.

Although I am not personally involved in the program, I am very proud to be a part of an organization that sees writing as one of the great arts through our Expression Creative Writing Program.

Finally, I LOVE music, all music. I am eclectic. Not to mention I attended a Performing Arts Junior and Senior High School. Who knows what would have happened if that initial love of music had been nurtured?

For these reasons, UNITY exemplifies the purpose of a not for profit to serve their community without expecting the payback to match the payout.
