Volunteers of the Month

Our Volunteer of the Month for July is Vivien Qiao!

Vivien, a local high school student, has spent countless hours working remotely on a research and data entry project for our Teen and Young Adult Leadership Program. Vivien has been a reliable and enthusiastic volunteer with EFNE.

Our Youth Programming Specialist, Chanda, says “Vivien has been so selfless as a high school student, and has donated so much of her time to the EFNE Teen and Young Adult Leadership Programs. She has supported our youth programs, laying the groundwork for outreach, by compiling key lists of data. The work is tedious and far from exciting, but the dozens of community data spreadsheets created will allow for the youth program to grow by leaps and bounds. Vivien's work has already enabled dozens of teen leader connections to take place, and is positively impacting young people affected by epilepsy.

Committed volunteers like Vivien are crucial to helping us expand our outreach, and we are so grateful for everything she has done. Thank you, Vivien!
