Molly Soboroff is determined to become a leader in tomorrow's nonprofit world, and she is on her way. Recently appointed to an exciting new position with the Jewish Federation of Greater Los Angeles, Molly credits AJU'S Graduate School of Nonprofit Management (GSN) with preparing her for this next step in her career.
Molly is now the Coordinator for the Community Engagement Council, a new program that provides young "Angelenos" who feel passionate about building a better Los Angeles opportunities to network and participate in exclusive events that will give them a greater sense of Jewish awareness and social responsibility.
"Because of my studies at GSN, I was able to stand out as a candidate who is serious about becoming a leader in the nonprofit sector," says Molly. "Additionally, my interview skills had been fine-tuned in GSN's Human Resource Management course, and also invaluable was the support that I received from my classmates during this process. They were rooting me on every step of the way!"
When Molly first graduated college, she joined AmeriCorps as a VIP Fellow and worked at the Jewish Federation's KOREH L.A., the largest volunteer literacy program for children in Los Angeles. She served two years (the maximum an AmeriCorps volunteer can serve) as a Literacy Coordinator, managing 120 volunteers in and around the West Valley.
Following her AmeriCorps experience, Molly knew that she wanted to continue furthering her education and was sure that she wanted to remain in the Jewish nonprofit sector. It was her father who originally suggested that she learn more about AJU'S Graduate School of Nonprofit Management. "I took his advice," says Molly, "and it has been an amazing fit."
