Little Brothers - Friends of the Elderly
Upper Michigan Office
I joined Connect Marquette because I wanted the opportunity to be able meet professionals in the area with similar interests and passions, such as community focused peers. I am an introvert and it can be difficult for me to meet people both in social and professional settings. When I learned about the organization, I thought it was the perfect way to help me in this area!
My membership gives me a bigger sense of community that I absolutely lacked prior to joining. I work in an elderly based non-profit with only one other employee at our local office, so meeting outside professionals isn’t easy. Having joined Connect Marquette I feel like I am part of a much larger group of professionals and much more connected to the community that I love so much. I have found my place here in the community. This is possible because I joined Connect Marquette.

I joined Connect Marquette because I was constantly looking for more opportunities to become involved and find others who were working towards the same goals. I want to create a lasting impact in a community that has felt more like home than any other place I have ever lived. Also, I am able to collaborate and learn from others within the organization to improve on the ways that I have been working within our community.
The membership is valuable to me because it keeps me in the loop on potential events and activities that both benefit my professional and personal goals. It can be difficult getting yourself out there in a professional setting and being proactive and doing. Connect Marquette has created a way to make it easier for me to network with local professionals who are either experiencing similar situations that I am, or people who have already worked through them and can provide guidance and direction.
