This past month, SOWA kicked up our Summer Learning Day celebrations by making a whole week of it, and more! Thank you to Governor Inslee who issued a proclamation declaring the week of July 10th Summer Learning Week in Washington, joining thousands of other communities across the state and nation acknowledging the critical role of enriching learning opportunities in keeping kids engaged, healthy, and on track for school in the fall.
What does it mean to develop the next generation of global leaders? AtOneWorld Now!, it means providing young people with the opportunity to be transformed through learning critical world languages that are in high demand by employers but not commonly taught in K-12 public schools, engaging in leadership development, and embarking on a study abroad experience with peers.
Money. We all use it. We all need it. And as SOWA expands our impact, someone's got to keep an eye on it. That's why we've brought on Justin Davis as our new Assistant Controller, who will bring his experience managing finances to our organization. Let's get to know him!
Kristin Brewster works with the Youth Program Quality Initiative to support programs throughout Washington in their journey through the assess-plan-improve process. Let's took a moment to ask Kristen about herself and what brought her to SOWA.
Originally from Austin, Texas, Cheryl is the first face you're likely to see as you walk into our office. As Finance and Administrative Assistant, she provides office and accounting support. Let's get to know her!
