What I liked
When I stumbled across a volunteer posting for Oaknoll during my sophomore year in 2015, I had no idea how much of an impact this opportunity would have on my life. I was welcomed by Brianna, Oaknoll's Volunteer Coordinator, who provided me with exceptional training and continues to be one of my greatest mentors. Brianna had faith in my abilities, which allowed me to develop and strengthen my leadership qualities and confidence. I have made great friends with fellow volunteers and staff and continue to be inspired by the amazing residents - all who have truly made a difference in my life. As an alumni with a full-time job, volunteer shifts or random drop-ins at Oaknoll continue to be the highlight of my busy days.
Whether you are a student, alumni, or community member, I would greatly encourage you to get involved at Oaknoll!
