PBP STEERING COMMITTEE
MEMBER TESTIMONIALS
WHY DID YOU JOIN PROJECT BY PROJECT?

“I was drawn by the cause of helping out the community. Especially the year I came on, PbP had partnered with Pacific Asian Counseling Services (PACS) for the theme of mental health, and I myself want to go towards a profession in helping out others in regards of utilizing services to improve mental health.”

(Member since 2014)

“During undergrad at UCI, I was fairly involved in community service in various capacities and after graduating I missed that aspect entering into the workforce. After i transitioned to my current job I had more time and I did some research on community services options as well as organizations I can join but the time commitment did not match with my schedule so I started volunteering the LA Regional Food Bank one to two times a month. Through an event and friend, I met an SC member of PbP who talked highly about the organization and the people. He suggested I check out the website because he thought it would align with my interests. After some research and asking Patrick tons of questions I decided to join PbP.”

HOW HAS PBP IMPACTED YOUR LIFE SO FAR?
