Thankful. Grateful. Blessed.
Fall is my favorite time of year! I love the change of seasons and the time for reflection as we enter the final quarter of the year. This fall I joined The DeBruce Foundation as a Strategic Relationship Manager. The Agile Work Profiler helped me identify my Agilities and how I could use them to benefit an organization. I am now thrilled to help our team and partners deliver on our mission of “expanding pathways to economic growth and opportunity” and help learners of all ages identify the values they bring to an organization as a volunteer, employee, or leader.
In this season of thanksgiving, I am especially grateful for The DeBruce Foundation team and to you for your role in expanding our mission.

4,000+ students from 37 schools learned about public service careers, explored the Agilities used within these roles, and took steps toward developing their future.
Research Study Highlights Opportunity
We recently commissioned a study of 700 youth and 300 adults, which indicates there is a tremendous opportunity to impact youth who have yet to decide on a career path or don’t know where to start.
