Volunteer Profile: Elizabeth Blanco

Liz Blanco is a program director in the nonprofit sector, a full-time graduate student, and a Cambridge mentor.

I'm in my second year of mentoring with Enroot and have been on the volunteer committee for just under a year.  My mentee and I were paired when she was a freshman. I'm hoping to work with her until she graduates and am really excited to see my her grow through her high school years. I've been able to develop a great relationship with my mentee and have met very interesting people through volunteer activities. It's also been nice to strengthen some soft skills (like intercultural communications) through the various trainings, activities, and events.
