HPK’s own Ricki Adams has been selected to participate in the inaugural class of Business Volunteers Unlimited Maryland’s Getting Involved with Volunteer Experience (GIVE) program. The initiative introduces young professionals to how they can improve their communities through volunteerism and leadership.
GIVE classmates will spend the next two years with like-minded professionals learning about issues facing the community and developing civic leadership skills. The experience will culminate in a volunteer leadership position with a nonprofit. During the first year of the program, the class will participate in learning seminars, volunteer opportunities and networking events. The second year of the program is a blend of intensive leadership development and continued participation in class events and seminars. Participants will also gain hands-on board experience by serving on the GIVE advisory board.
