Have you wanted to get more involved in the community but aren't sure how to begin, where to start, or how much work it's going to be? If you answered yes, then this is the panel for you! Join YPWA and our six panelists:

  • Julie Bowditch, Advancement Officer, Community Fundraising, UMass Medical School

  • Elizabeth Wambui, Director of Advancement, Nativity School of Worcester

  • Kim Driscoll, Associate Director of Advancement Nativity School of Worcester

  • Julie Davenport, Construction Project Manager, Cutler Associates, Inc.

From The CASA Project Worcester County, Habitat for Humanity Metrowest/Great Worcester, Greater Worcester Community Foundation, Main IDEA, YPWA, and more, our panelists are very involved in community organizations. Whether you're interested in becoming a board member, leading an event committee, or volunteering your time more casually, there will be something for everyone.


This is an interactive panel, so questions from the audience are strongly encouraged!
