Beth and Sarah Sunu (Gillig) are Giving the Gift of Opportunities to Help Others
“When my sister first told me about the amazing experiences she was having as an MPF Fellow, helping youth to generate the social momentum needed to create change in their schools, community, nation, and world, I thought it sounded like a great program. As I watched her year of service unfold, I realized that I wanted to have that opportunity as well, and help youth to become engaged, socially responsible citizens. This year, I’ve already grown and learned so much from the other Fellows and the youth that I’m serving, and I’m thrilled to be part of the program. Everyone should have the opportunity to empower youth to engage in and improve their communities, and MPF does an outstanding job of providing the skills, knowledge, and support to make that happen.”
– Beth Gillig, MPF Fellow 2015-2016
