Trent volunteers because...
I have always been active and volunteering and I love the idea of being able to give back. I am also a firm believer the concept that a small act can make a big difference, and I want to make a difference in the world. As a senior Business and Economics student, I wanted to gain more experience working with nonprofits to hopefully work in the nonprofit sector full-time after graduation. I am honored to be a part of such an amazing team that is doing such important work in the world.
