“Capital Campaign”
Active Aging, Inc.

Active Aging is a non-profit agency in Crawford County that provides useful resources to senior citizens to promote a healthy and active lifestyle. Brandon has played an integral role in the planning of numerous events at Active Aging including: Veteran’s Day, dinner theatre events, workshops, and much more. He has also been involved in the “Capital Campaign” to raise money for the new Senior Citizen Center in Crawford County.

The most beneficial aspect of the Davies program is the hands-on experience and volunteer opportunities that happen right here in Meadville; the interaction with the agency is great! Since living here, Brandon feels that Meadville has certainly become an integral part of his college experience, not just a college town. He is always finding something new about Meadville. The real-world experience of working in a non-profit transcends all aspects of professional life. Whether it is working with others on a project or funding raising, the skills that Brandon has learned are countless.

Brandon is a rising senior Spanish major with a double minor in Economics and Science, Health, and Society. He grew up in Donora, PA, but currently calls Monessen, PA home. He has always enjoyed his time at Allegheny, and can’t wait to visit again as he progresses through his future career.
