Emily just recently moved here to work with Hands and Feet of Asheville, a year-long service program for young adults to pursue their passions, serve others, build community, and explore their faith. Participants are placed with local non-profits, and Emily says she was lucky enough to be placed with Haywood Street Congregation, serving as the Development Associate (or intern). Another part of her assignment with Hands and Feet is working with the YMCA After School Program in the afternoon.
Emily graduated from Auburn University in May with a degree in Business Administration and a minor in Philanthropy and Nonprofit Studies. She says, “I am so excited to become part of the Asheville community and I already feel like I’ve found my home at Haywood Street!”
