“My favorite part about Spark the Wave has to be the people I work with. The fact that, year after year, so many students and adults return to donate their time to teaching middle and high school kids about service is very telling. This speaks volumes about not only about our message, but about the kind of people that our volunteers try to be, and about the values they try to pass on to all of our delegates. I don’t know how we managed to pull together such an incredible group for our staff, but I’m very thankful that we did.
I’ve been involved with Spark the Wave since Wave Week 2008, so I’ve really been able to watch the organization grow and expand. It’s truly been a privilege to be a part of the team that’s bringing our programming to DC, my hometown, and I think this summer is just the beginning.”
