Jarred Ervin simply states that, “Service has always been a part of my life.” Jarred has long been actively serving his community, and becoming a Volunteer Maryland Coordinator with the Maryland CASH Campaign is another step in his journey through service.
Jarred has been involved with the Boy Scouts for most of his life, and has achieved the high rank of Eagle Scout. Through Boy Scouts, Jarred has led several service projects throughout the Baltimore area. As a student at Duquesne University, Jarred continued to remain active in service. He was active with the campus ministry center and participated in mission trips where he worked with the people of Appalachia. After earning his degree in integrated marketing communications, Jarred joined the Episcopal Service Corps, and worked with Project PLASE, a shelter and resource center for homeless individuals in Baltimore City.
Jarred is excited to work with Maryland CASH Campaign, because, “I am able to use my marketing and communication skills to both manage and recruit volunteers.” While working with his site this year, Jarred hopes that this year will provide clarity for what he wants to do in the future. Currently considering graduate school for either law, non-profit development, or business administration, Jarred is eager to learn more about the inner-working of nonprofits while at his site.
In his spare time, Jarred loves to read. He mostly reads non-fiction, but his favorite fiction author is Haruki Murakami; Jarred has read every one of Murakami’s novels, and is now working his way through his short stories. Jarred is also a runner. Having completed two half marathons and a full marathon, Jarred is currently training for his second full marathon this November.
