If you could have dinner with 1 person who you regard as a leader, who would it be and why?

I would choose Elizabeth Warren because of her commitment to creating economic opportunity and justice for all Americans.

What motivates you to create social impact?

My previous involvement with public service has opened my eyes to some of society’s most pressing problems, and I want to be a part of creating solutions for them.

Host Site Overview

We help collaborate in-person and online to help service members, veterans, and their families navigate the “sea of goodwill.”

Host Site Project

IFJ brings together working groups to provide resources for veterans. The New Sector Fellow will work directly with the Executive Director of Illinois Joining Forces to support and grow the IJF’s Member Working Groups. The Fellow will focus specifically on: communications by implementing website improvements that increase access to information and resources for IJF Members; programming by completing a gap analysis and proposing program improvements to Member Working Groups; and community awareness by planning and executing the member summit. The Fellow will also spend no more than 5% of their time on fund development efforts to support enhancements to the Member Working Group programming.
