The Angaza Project is now a certifying organization that may submit volunteers and hours for the Points of Light- Corporation for National & Community Service Awards! "We strive to recognize and thank our volunteers in various ways for the impact they have throughout the year, and this is one more way to officially do that" says Jennifer Wiley, Founder.
In 2003, the President's Council on Service and Civic Participation founded the President's Volunteer Service Award to recognize the important role of volunteers. This award honors people who have positively impacted communities while also inspiring others around them! Led by the Corporation for National and Community Service and managed in partnership with Points of Light, this program allows Certifying Organizations to recognize their most exceptional volunteers.
We currently have two nominations for 2019 that we are excited to share with the world! The Angaza Project has nominated Kylee Henneman of Monroe, North Carolina and Kayla Lewis of Charleston, South Carolina! Congratulations on your nomination ladies! "The work they have done to empower women around the world to shine through economic and education opportunities has impacted so many in our service areas" says Jennifer Wiley, Founder.
In particular, Kylee Henneman has been on the ground in both service areas this year meeting the operational needs of the organization and she was the lead on our 2019 Annual Event. Kylee is a graduate of the Appalachian State University and is now a First Grade Teacher with a true passion for education.
Kayla Lewis authored our Girls Empowerment lesson plans which took a great deal of time to prepare. Her training and credentials as a Therapist allowed her to craft age and content appropriate topics for others to facilitate in a workshop style setting. Kayla has extensive experience working with the youth in education.
Congratulations to Kayla and Kylee for the 2019 Corporation for National & Community Service Award Nomination!
