My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for Freedom United, Raleigh, NC, USA
I had the opportunity to work for Freedom United for three years. I started out through a year long leadership program in high school that focused on educating and enabling young people to be activist in their community by raising awareness of modern slavery. A year later in college, I began a 6-week summer internship which led to me formally joining the team for the remainder of my time. The team at Freedom United was incredibly accommodating to my schedule while I was still a full-time college student and provided me space to figure out my niche as a professional. During my tenure, I was able to be apart of many incredible, diverse projects that all were dedicated to truly helping others learn about the reality of modern slavery while giving them tangible ways to take action. Freedom United does an incredibly job at giving anyone whom wants to make a difference all the tools they need to truly make an impact. The organization has built an accessible, caring, and giving community of individuals who want to use their voices to drive real change. It was truly an honor to serve this community and watch it grow throughout my time with the organization. While I decided to step away from my formal role, I will continue to support the work they do as a community member!
