When asked about her motivation for serving, Yinka immediately mentions a cause very close to her heart — Sickle Cell Disease. Yinka’s personal experience with this illness has motivated her to serve others who experience a range of challenges. As Volunteer Maryland Coordinator with Montgomery County Community Action Agency, she will have that opportunity.

The Montgomery County Community Action Agency, a recent recipient of the prestigious Governor’s Service Award, coordinates local, State, federal and private resources to help low-income individuals and families. Yinka will work with CAA programs and partners, including the VITA program and Maryland Hunger Solutions.

As a UMBC grad and UMUC student, Yinka is passionate about continuing to learn. During her year with Volunteer Maryland, she explains, “I want to develop skills recruiting volunteers and running successful programs. I need volunteers who understand the issue and believe in the program.”
