Maddie attended Ursinus College, where she majored in Peace and Social Justice Studies and participated in Bonner Leaders (a leadership and civic engagement program that focused on community service). She has had years of volunteer experience working at summer camps and after-school programs with younger children throughout college and high school, but she found her passion at YouthBuild Philadelphia in working with young adults. Maddie is an AmeriCorps Member and Community Projects Coordinator at YouthBuild.  She wants to help students feel seen, supported and empowered to graduate from high school and follow their dreams. She is excited to work with Child and Youth Development Students at YouthBuild to build their skills and become the empowering and attentive youth workers the community needs.
