*Volunteer Spotlight*

Amber is a volunteer in the Bend preschool class. She has been volunteering at MountainStar for over a year now, getting fieldwork hours as she works towards a degree to be a school counselor. Amber lives in La Pine, so when she is not helping in the preschool class, she also helps Maren, our La Pine outreach coordinator, with sorting and distributing donations and organizing community outreach events.

Amber is such a huge help in the Bend preschool class, and the children absolutely adore her. During one circle time, our preschool teacher, Kathy, asked each child who they would like to give a hug if they felt sad, and one little girl said, “Amber!”

Amber does such an incredible job of balancing her school, work, care for her own children, and volunteering at MountainStar. You’d never know how busy she is by the level of care and attention she devotes to each child in the classroom. Amber is so playful and fun, and she also works hard with the Bend preschool teachers to create an inclusive and comforting environment for all the children in the preschool class. We wish Amber could be out intern forever, but we are so excited for her to take the next step in her career!
