Next Step:

Through the Executive Series with Leadership Lancaster I grew a deep appreciation for the community at large. I primarily work in the city with youth that face barriers to services like afterschool services or sports leagues. Learning about the rich history that Lancaster County has to offer helped me understand the people that have lived here their entire life. I also met friends that I keep in touch with regularly and one of my best friends in that series. I made connections in industries I would have never had without having the experience. Its great fellowship with a great mission. I am so grateful to have had the experience!
