He first became involved with MND through his labor economics course at Loyola. “I knew I wanted to do volunteer work somewhere and I found Maryland New Directions to have the position that best suited me.” Chris loves volunteering. “The reason I chose to volunteer is because I love helping people. That is one of my passions in life and always has been.” He enjoys volunteering as a Job Search Assistant at MND because it has given him the opportunity to help people search and apply for jobs. He finds motivation in the appreciation he receives from those who he helps. Chris enjoys connecting with people and building relationships while guiding them through the job search process.
He wishes more people knew about “how valuable the experience is at MND. Every day I see how beneficial the classes and job coaches are to clients.”
