About the In Focus Series:
PROPEL’s In Focus Series provides a means for young professionals to learn about nonprofits, and to identify opportunities to volunteer, donate their professional services, and serve on the boards of the organizations they learn about. Stay tuned for the next event in the series featuring Junior Achievement of Maine.
PROPEL’s mission is to help young people and businesses thrive in Maine. The PROPEL board accomplishes this by making Maine the best place to Network, Develop and Live as a young person or, in other words, to build relationships, learn continuously and celebrate leisure time. PROPEL develops programs to support these pillars and its members are the boots on the ground welcoming newcomers to the State. Visit www.propelportland.org to learn more.
