EAB’s Community Impact Leader, Catherine Brown, is joined by Monique Rizer from The Urban Alliance and Monica Floyd from Streetwise Partners to talk about ways that higher education leaders can generate greater impact from their community service projects despite social distancing restrictions.
The three share reasons why volunteers from the ranks of higher education can have an outsized impact on the lives of young adults.
They also talk about trends in volunteerism in the wake of George Floyd’s murder, including growing calls for employers to get more actively involved in community service initiatives.
