Montressa Hammond is a graduate student at University of Maryland University College, where she is studying Nonprofit Management. Montressa previously served as an AmeriCorps member with the House of Ruth, and most recently she has interned with the St. Francis Neighborhood Center. She and St. Francis Neighborhood Center staff are very happy that Montressa will be able to continue her service there as Volunteer Maryland Coordinator.
While serving SFNC’s 2014 Summer of Service learning project, Montressa became entranced by the youth’s desire to soak up knowledge, and she noticed there was a need for more long-term volunteers. This inspired Montressa to help the organization continue their great work for the community.
This year, Montressa hopes to build professional skills such as public speaking and networking.
