When I graduated from Earlham College in May, I knew I was ending a chapter and beginning a new journey as a recent college graduate. While it was difficult leaving the familiar; Earlham, friends, and family, I decided to join the PULSE program in Pittsburgh, PA.
PULSE cultivates a community of young servant leaders to transform Pittsburgh. They invite recent, college graduates (like myself) to partner with local nonprofits for a year of service and leadership. I got excited about the PULSE program because it allows me to learn more about Pittsburgh, live in a community with other recent graduates, and discover more about myself and others through serving in a non-profit organization.
I am looking forward to immersing in many new communities; including the one of my fellow PULSErs, my non-profit site, and greater Pittsburgh. I am excited about how these communities can positively impact me and how I can help impact them. My hope for the year is to develop as a leader and to gain new skills for the future.
Part of my first task as a PULSE participant is to assemble a team of people who will support me in this work. I realize that I can’t do this work alone, that I need others to come alongside me and partner with me.
Would you please consider supporting me in this work? I am in the process of raising a minimum of $2500 to cover expenses for this year of service and leadership. Your support will help impact the lives of Pittsburgh’s most vulnerable.
