Megan Jones, Senior, Parks, Recreation & Tourism Management (Program Management)Interests: NC State Athletics and volunteering”Nonprofit work has been something that I have been involved in since the age of four. I truly believe that we all can give something back to others around us as described in a quote by Albert Pine that I live by that says, ‘What we do for ourselves dies with us. What we do for others and the world remains and is immortal.’ I am very excited to be a Nonprofit Studies Minor Ambassador to spread the word about this incredible minor!”
Cara Taylor, Junior, Anthropology major & Nonprofits minor

I decided to obtain a nonprofits minor after my first class in nonprofits! I am hoping to use my minor to work with museums after graduation. During my nonprofit studies, I have been most impressed by the reciprocity within the nonprofit sector. It is the giving nature of nonprofit work that influenced my desire to give back to the Nonprofit Institute on campus, and to become a student ambassador. “For it is in giving that we receive.” – Francis of Assisi
