Streetside Stories’ Volunteer of the Month

My family and I had a blast at Streetside Stories‘ recent Volunteer Appreciation Grill-out! I was being honored as a Volunteer of the Month for my work over the years on their award-winning website — and am currently helping them update and widen the site, so stay-tuned for that. Thank you Streetside!

Streetside Stories is a San Francisco-based literacy arts nonprofit that has helped over 14,000 students to share their life stories, connect with the arts, and improve their literacy skills. I was fortunate to have the opportunity to redesign and build their website a few years back as a pro-bono web designer on a team for a Taproot Foundation service grant.

Volunteering their services to non-profits is a fantastic way for designers to make a difference in their communities.
