AmeriCorps VISTA Member
Leah is an AmeriCorps member in the VISTA program serving with Maggie Walker Community Land Trust. Their role is to increase data collected by the organization to expand community outreach. Maggie Walker Community Land Trust attracted Leah’s enthusiasm due to the organization’s efforts to increase wealth opportunities and access to homeownership for families in Virginia.

During their time studying, they gained significant outreach and mentorship experience through various roles. Some of those roles included Hollins Activity Board Member, Hollins Film Department Equipment co-Coordinator, Hollins Summer Programming Community Assistant, and Committee Member for Hollins University’s 13th Presidential Inauguration. Leah has coordinated events and outreach, designed education and action campaigns, reported to administrative professionals and diverse constituencies, and led new community member orientations. In her time off, Leah hopes to explore Richmond’s diverse restaurants, enjoy exhibitions at the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts, and spend time at local theaters.
