As a native Vermonter, I was overjoyed to discover Cabot’s work honoring volunteers in their communities! I’ve been fortunate to build a career around causes and organizations that I care deeply about, and Cabot’s mission resonated strongly with me.
Emmeline Cardozo works for a national non-profit called Girls Who Code. The organization works to close the gender gap in technology and equip young women with the confidence and skills to pursue careers in tech. Through direct service programs aimed at girls in grades 6 through 12, Girls Who Code, provides skills in computer coding, leadership and community building. Emmeline leads a team working with over 80 sponsors to serve 10,000 young women across the country annually. She began her career in science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) advocacy at The Rockefeller University’s Women in Science initiative.
As a volunteer, she spends time working with local non-profits including Brooklyn Bridge Park and Girls Write Now, where she is a member of the College Bound panel.
Emmeline and her work with young women, came to Cabot’s attention during the book tour for The Happy, Healthy Non-Profit Book. Authors Beth Kanter and Aliza Sherman, seek to help non-profits reach great success while avoiding getting burned out from the work. Emmeline is one of two book tour recipients joining the Community Celebrities. Emmeline’s boyfriend Manuel Quintana will be joining her on this trip of a lifetime.
