Jake started his nonprofit journey in high school as a member of Jewish youth philanthropy organizations. He graduated in 2022 with a BA in Sociology from Willamette University (WU). While at WU, he studied Oregon’s complicated history with Indian Boarding Schools and the lasting effects left on Tribes and institutions. Jake now comes to us with over a year of experience with Child Welfare training and advocacy, a passion for social justice, and a mission to help those with the ability to shape and improve local communities.

He is an avid runner, baker, and writer; and he will never pass up an opportunity to talk about movies and TV.
