Yinka is a VM Alum who most recently served in Volunteer Maryland’s Class of VM 30 as a Peer Leader who helped the support team and cohort of AmeriCorps Members. She supported them in their role on the field, designed a multitude of digital/print materials with her graphic design experience, and has now moved on!
On the day of VM’s Class Finale, Yinka received the news that she would be working as the Outreach Specialist for Catholic Charities’ Share Food Network (for their Baltimore, Howard and Montgomery branch) a sustainable, social enterprise of Catholic Charities that helps anyone save money on nutritious, healthy food. They are committed to supporting local community groups where all may participate, serve, and lead with dignity. How’s that for timing?
We’re so excited to have seen Yinka grow through her two years of service to AmeriCorps with Volunteer Maryland. Not only did she serve as Peer Leader in the 2017-18 Service Year, she had also been the Volunteer Coordinator in 2016-17 at Montgomery County Community Action Agency. We are so proud and look forward to see Yinka achieve great things during her new journey.
