The Upside

Two Inspired Women have Found Themselves at Aspiration

Welcome Uno and Jessica

Jessica Steimer and Uno Nam are the newest members of the team here at Aspiration. As AmeriCorps VISTAs, it is their job to spend one year working on capacity building for NPOs with the ultimate goal of helping to reduce poverty. The program under which they are working, called HandsOn Tech, is sponsored by the Points of Light Institute based in Atlanta and incorporates 24 VISTAs in seven cities, all with the shared focus of using technology to make organizations more efficient and more effective in supporting their mission. Each will work with eleven non profits over the course of a year, providing workshops, assessment, and on-site support.

Let us introduce ourselves!
