Meet AFP Maryland Chapter Member: Mandy Snyder

MandySnyderMandy Snyder is the Senior Development Manager for Junior Achievement of Central Maryland. 

We asked Mandy...

What is the most rewarding thing about being a professional fundraiser?

Being able to see the dollars raised in action.  At Junior Achievement, we make the connection between the classroom and the real world; getting students college and career ready through our three pillars of work readiness, financial literacy, and entrepreneurship.  When I go into the classroom or see the students in action, it makes all of the hard work worth it.  Being able to talk the students and hear the lessons they learned and how Junior Achievement is truly preparing them for their future and that they are going to take these skills back to the classroom, on their next interview, or with them to college is extremely rewarding.
