Sarah is a rising senior at UMBC majoring in Philosophy with a minor in Human Context of Science & Technology. She joins the ToolBank for the summer through the Walter Sondheim Jr. Maryland Nonprofit Leadership Program ( MNLP).
The MNLP introduces undergraduate and graduate students attending Maryland institutions to the nonprofit sector. Students work full-time at nonprofit organizations, gaining deep exposure to community work while being mentored by senior level administrators.
Here’s a little more about our new teammate:
Why did you want to participate in the SNLP?
I wanted to participate in the program to explore my interest in a career in the nonprofit sector.
What have you enjoyed so far about the program?
I like that we get to learn about the theoretical aspects of nonprofit work as well as getting to experience what it’s like from the inside!
What drew you to the ToolBank?
Out of all the organizations I could choose from, the ToolBank was the most relevant to my environmental interests, as well as having the most unique and interesting mission and style of operation.
What have you been working on so far during your internship?
I have been designing a curriculum with activities to teach visiting groups about the ToolBank’s environmental features and projects – the rain gardens, stormwater factory, and floating wetlands!
What is your favorite tool?
