Lisa is quoted as saying about The GIVE Program, "GIVE. This is a word that I have come to incorporate into my every day life. My friends, family and colleagues have grown to know me as GIVE. In the past, I’ve volunteered for the National Foundation for Teaching Education (NFTE), Towson University and the Priceless Gown Project (PGP), but it wasn’t until GIVE (Getting Involved in Volunteer Experiences), that I truly understood the meaning of a volunteer. In the summer of 2008, I was asked to sit in on a focus group that would help identify obstacles young professionals are faced with when finding volunteer opportunities and board placement. This was the beginning of an amazing journey. From that point forward, I’ve been actively serving as Chair of GIVE, a first year project under Business Volunteers Unlimited (BVU). We assist young professionals in finding non-profit opportunities through days of service, networking events and learning seminars. The purpose of GIVE is to place talented civic leaders in a non-profit they can give to for years to come, whether it’s through building houses, helping children or serving on a non-profit Board of Directors. I am extremely fortunate to have been presented with this opportunity as it has allowed me to meet with so many talented individuals and work closely with the brilliant staff at BVU."
