Volunteers Making a Difference – Ryan Quade
- Provide training and increase Tribal public health workforce
- Improve Tribal public data and information systems
- Increase Tribal public health programs and services
As a young teenager, Ryan started an interfaith volunteer service group that was very active:
- Cleaned yards and highways
- Uplifted homebound elderly through singing, dancing and crafts
- Worked at food banks, and more.
He believes that volunteering helps people make a meaningful difference in the world. His school’s moto is “Enter to Learn; Go Forth to Serve”. Ryan says this embodies his belief on why we are here on this Earth.
Initially, Ryan wanted to be a journalist, but then found a love for numbers and accounting. He is a junior and enrolled in the accounting program. He is grateful for the opportunity of combining his passion for writing with his analytical skills to successfully obtain grants that have a positive influence on Tribal Members lives.
Chi Miigwech Ryan!
