Each month, Alternatives For Girls’ Volunteer Department, highlights one volunteer who AFG staff recognize as being a dedicated and passionate volunteer. This month we spotlight Mahima Mahadevan, a former AFG employee, and committed special events volunteer.
Mahima is a former Alternatives For Girls employee who worked in the Development Department from 2006-2008. Since then, Mahima has remained connected with AFG by volunteering at events such as the Role Model Dinner and the Holiday High Tea.
Mahima was able to learn about AFG’s various programs first hand while she was an employee. Recognizing the importance of the services and support AFG provides, Mahima wanted to remain connected with Alternatives For Girls and continue to give back to the organization. Mahima describes the special spot AFG holds in her heart and the personal growth she has made over the years as a volunteer. She says she has gained friendships, understanding, education, and compassion.
Mahima remains committed because of how AFG treats everyone who comes through the doors whether it’s a volunteer, staff, or participant. “I enjoy being part of a team where everyone’s time, energy, and contributions are valued,” she describes. Furthermore, Mahima continues to have a positive impact at AFG through her openness, kindheartedness, and sincerity.
Thank you, Mahima, for being an ongoing AFG supporter!
