Ascend the Path
Five years ago, I became involved with p:ear, first teaching a class on the weekends and then joining the board in 2010. For the past two years, I’ve served as the board chair, a challenging and rewarding experience.
p:ear takes its event themes very seriously. “Ascend the Path” is a metaphor for the focus of the organization’s work this year, which culminates in the annual p:ear blossoms. Similarly, the success of this year’s p:ear blossoms goes deeper than a record-breaking fundraiser party, though it is that as well. It is representative of an organization and its leaders that have worked hard to transform into a sustainable model with a constant focus on serving our community’s most vulnerable population: homeless youth.
