Greg is the Outreach Coordinator for the CFSY and is responsible for engaging with family members of individuals serving extreme sentences for crimes committed as children through the National Family Network and with incarcerated individuals themselves.
Greg is serving as the Outreach Coordinator this year through the Jesuit Volunteer Corps, a service organization that places recent college graduates in different nonprofits and community service agencies throughout the country. For the duration of a calendar year, Jesuit Volunteers live in intentional community and serve at their placements at a reduced cost as a commitment of living simply. The Jesuit Volunteer year is centered on the four pillars of spirituality, simple lifestyle, community, and social justice.
Although Greg earned a degree in Chemistry he spent much of his time in college as a member of the Mobilization of Volunteer Efforts, Saint Michael’s College’s volunteer office. Greg led a number of service trips around the country that prompted him to engage in advocacy work. Greg has advocated that health is a human right by fighting for life-saving international aid programs like the President’s Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR) as a member of the Student Global AIDS Campaign and helped start a Partner’s In Health Engage chapter at the University of Vermont.
As a self-proclaimed Vermonter, Greg has been learning to love the city but misses the opportunities to hike, ski, and admire the graceful Green Mountains of Vermont. When not at work, you can find Greg ensconced between precarious piles of books or enjoying time with his community.
