A graduate of Lincoln University, Ericka Blackwell was drawn to service after interning at a nonprofit in Philadelphia. “I realized my love for serving and giving back the community,” Ericka says, “I want to give support to those who need it most.”
As Volunteer Maryland Coordinator at the Center of Help in Annapolis, Ericka will be doing just that. She will recruit, train and coordinate volunteers who help immigrants locate the resources and information they need. During this service year, Ericka also hopes to strengthen her leadership, organizational, networking and management skills. As she weighs several career options, one thing Ericka is sure about is that she wants to find a place in the nonprofit world.
