Cara H. '17-'20

"YPB is a way to be more involved and give back to the Richmond community while building a network of young professionals with a similar passion for service."

Alec S. '17-Present

"I had volunteered at Special Olympics events in college, and wanted to continue when I moved to Richmond. I love getting to know the athletes and watching them compete with their friends."

Abby P. '20-Present

"I wanted to find other ways to volunteer in Richmond outside of my pre-existing network. I enjoy serving and interacting with others so when I saw the opportunity to join YPB and support Special Olympics I knew it was something I wanted to be involved in."
