Olivia Straub graduated from Colgate University with a BA in Peace and Conflicts Studies this past May. Looking for a new challenge, Olivia moved from her New Jersey home to Baltimore City where she will serve as the Volunteer Maryland Coordinator with Project PLASE. Project PLASE addresses homelessness by providing transitional housing, permanent housing, and supportive services to homeless adults. As the Volunteer Maryland Coordinator, Olivia will work in the Transitional and Permanent Housing programs. “I hope to be able to learn how to effectively manage and organize volunteers and look forward to the challenge of working within a smoothly running organization to help their volunteer program become sustainable,” Olivia said.
