The Passion Behind the Action

Meet our Team


Maria Stroup


I am the founder of the Impact Center and an igniter of purpose and program. My primary objectives are community connection, innovative program development, and empowering young people to find their unique contribution in this world. I am responsible for advancing a mission that seeks to always be relevant and impactful.

I am passionate about dignity for all of humanity, and more specifically, equality and the cycle of poverty and its implications.

Lauren Kline


I support the inspirational work of the Impact Center by coordinating all fundraising efforts, pursuing relationships with new donors and investors, and expanding Impact Center's sources of support from major philanthropists. I work with the Board of Directors and oversee the financials. Additionally, I coordinate marketing and communication and lead Human Resource efforts. I’m honored to support these dynamic educators and the exhilarating work of Impact Center.

I am passionate about the plight of displaced immigrant & refugee families and preventing gun violence in schools.

Deb Borden


I work with the Impact Team to develop our program and coordinate with schools and faith institutions. As a facilitator and educator, I oversee the middle and high school students' service learning and leadership opportunities. I connect educators with professional development experiences to help them better engage in service with their students. It is important to me to build compassionate leaders and engaged citizens among our youth.

I am passionate about human rights and ending world hunger.

Sandi Richards


I focus on developing and sustaining strong partnerships with local nonprofits. These nonprofits will work hand-in-hand with our volunteers of all ages to provide them with the best experience possible to foster authentic growth and understanding. I find the places where our passionate kids can volunteer and find their agency in the world. I make sure we nurture reciprocal relationships with all our partners.

I am passionate about equality and education.
