Why did I get involved with All Aboard for Kids?
It was a fortuitous meeting when Lisa M. reached out to meet regarding HDFS internships at a time when I was looking to get back into community engagement after having been in early childhood for almost 25 years. All Aboard for Kids was new to me, but while talking with Lisa, I quickly understood this was a group of people who, like me, had a passion for supporting children in spaces where they’ve not always had opportunities, such as summer camp. I have always been motivated to support and advocate for all children. By the end of the meeting, I was volunteering myself for the board! I am thrilled to be a part of this growing organization.
