Georgia brings a wealth of nonprofit leadership experience to Opportunity@Work, with a focus on developing corporate partnerships and leading innovative programs preparing young people for college and career. In her 20+ years in the sector, Georgia has held senior positions in marketing/communications, program management, and corporate fundraising for a number of leading social enterprises, including KaBOOM!, Peer Forward, Teach For All, and First Book. At Points of Light, a global organization focused on civic engagement and volunteerism, she managed two national programs: A Billion + Change, which galvanized leading companies to do more pro bono volunteerism and ServiceWorks, a pilot public-private partnership with Citi and the Corporation for National & Community Service that tested national service as a pathway for thousands of opportunity youth to gain skills and build their professional networks in 10+ cities across the country. She began her career as a middle school and street educator in Lima, Peru.
