Joanne provides technical support for national service training events, project management, and online surveys. Prior to joining Education Northwest in 2006, she served one year as an AmeriCorps member and worked at an alternative school and three local nonprofits in Portland. In her free time, she is an active volunteer for Amnesty International USA, engaging human rights activists locally and nationally.

We live in an era when volunteering is an integral part of our daily lives. It’s an exciting time to be involved in national service.
