Advancing Leadership is happy to introduce you to Carrie Raflowski, our new, full-time Program Manager.
Carrie brings a wealth of community knowledge and experience, as well as a passion for servant leadership – all crucial elements of the Advancing Leadership model.
She has volunteered in the Federal Way school district and other non-profits for the last 11 years, and currently works with Seattle Children’s Hospital, the Multi-Service Center and the FW Cares for Kids holiday program.
In describing what appealed to her about this role, Carrie said, “The program manager position pairs my love of volunteering with my joy of office work. I’m excited to participate in the adult leadership development program (ALA) and grow as a leader…. I have a lot of experience with fundraisers, especially auctions, and look forward to facilitating and coordinating AL’s annual fundraiser. But, what I am most excited about is becoming more engaged with our city, being a part of making Federal Way a stronger city and connecting and working with others who want to do the same.”
Working with Executive Director Lawrence Garrett and the AL Board of Directors, Carrie will be managing program days for all our classes, facilitating the youth projects, leading our Evening with the Stars event team and performing all sorts of administrative and outreach magic behind the scenes.
“Carrie brings a lengthy history of non-profit experience and has an impeccable track record in our community,” explains Lawrence. “She’s done awesome work with several of our partners and we’re thrilled to now have her working with us.”
We hope you’ll join us in welcoming Carrie to our staff and to the AL Nation!
