My experience volunteering with SPACE 4 US was really gratifying. It was fun and meaningful to share with engaged teens the different aspects of my work as a nonprofit development director and to hear their ideas and personalities come through in our discussions.
— Esther Landau, Director of Development & Corporate Communications at Pomeroy Recreation Center
It has been great having SPACE 4 US coordinate career workshops for us. It has been exciting for both our program specialists and the students to meet people from different career paths and how they figured out their passions.
