Internships in Aging Project Alumni take on FUNdraising efforts

A committee of alumni of the School of Social Welfare have worked to support the Internships in Aging Project scholarship fund over the last several years.

This year, chaired by Karen (Vincek) Baxter ’12 and Alaina Shanley ’15, the committee is hosting “An Evening with IAP”, an annual fundraising event on September 30 as well as a Hot Yoga event on September 4th. The committee plans events to be accessible for students, promote networking and having a good time while raising needed funds to encourage and support students specializing in working with older adults! Karen sees real value in participating in the committee - "the Internships in Aging Project was an integral part of my MSW education and working on the committee has been a great way to pay it forward to future generations of social workers interested in working with the aging community."For more information about either event, please contact kmvincek@gmail.com.
