William Drew, a graduate of Belmont Abbey College and proud Eagle Scout, recently completed a year of service as Volunteer Maryland Coordinator at the St. Francis Neighborhood Center, where he led 79 volunteers who assisted with the Power Project, a free afterschool program for 31 students. During that time, William also became an avid volunteer at Chesapeake Natives, where he will serve as VMC this year.
Of his upcoming service year, William says, “I want to help and learn more about the environment. I also want to put my developed leadership skills to good use. I was motivated by my desire to help people. I also share many similar interests to the people I’ll be working with.”
During the service year, William says, “I am hoping to further develop my leadership skills. I would also like to gain construction skills” One of William’s long-term goals is to build a tiny house and start a homestead.
