Welcome to Isabel Argoti - Every Kid in a Park Fellow!
OAK is pleased to introduce you to Isabel Argoti, a new Fellow housed with the National Park Service in partnership with OAK and Conservation Legacy to help advance the Every Kid in a Park program to get fourth graders outdoors! "After graduating from the University of Virginia in 2016, I interned with the National Park Service in Colorado focused on communications and urban outreach. Since finishing up and moving back home, I am happy to rejoin NPS as the Every Kid in a Park and OAK Community Assistance Fellow. Originally born in Ecuador, I grew up and live in Montgomery County, Maryland. I have a passion for youth and education being a first generation college student myself. With the park service, I hope to reach more underrepresented audiences through my local connections and expand the outreach both NPS and OAK has to offer." Isabel can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org. Welcome Isabel - we are glad to have you on our team!
