This Familiar Faces Friday, we are introducing Karla Medina Alamar. Karla is our Community Impact Initiative Coordinator. Learn more about her role, what she likes to do in her free time and how she connects to the programs we offer at United Way of Lake County (UWLC)!
When did you start working at UWLC?
I started on June 11, 2018.
What is your title and role?
I am the Community Impact Initiative Coordinator and I am mainly responsible for volunteer engagement and project outreach.
What made you want to be a part of this organization?
I was a summer associate in 2017 and found that United Way programs really do make a difference, children do take notice and when they’re there they are visibly excited. Also, the team atmosphere that people establish creates a work environment that I knew I wanted.
Which of UWLC’s programs do you connect to most and why?
United Way Days because revitalizing schools does a whole lot of good towards children’s educational experience.
What is your favorite part of your job here?
At the end of the day of a long school re-enhancement project, there is a visible and finished product that everyone can admire and shows the hard work and dedication of our volunteers.
When you are not at work, what kinds of things do you do with your time?
For now, I am trying to publish my senior year Anthropology & Sociology thesis and keep my younger siblings active for the summer.
