UMBC’s Graduate Program in Community Leadership and St. Francis Neighborhood Center partnered together for a semester project.
Community Leadership graduate student, Rasheedah Evans, paired up with her mentor from the St. Francis Neighborhood Center, Bre Hill, Development and Events Coordinator, to learn firsthand the essential skills she needs to be an effective community leader. During her time interning with St. Francis Neighborhood Center last semester, Rasheedah learned valuable skills that helped her grow as a professional.
