Our staff will help you find available service opportunities.
Amy Greene, Director of Community ServiceAmy Greene’s background in service began with a love for the urban outdoors in her hometown of Queens, NY where she volunteered for the National Park Service. Investing her time and staying connected to her community through nature led her to pursue a Bachelor of Science in Marine Biology from the University of Rhode Island. Following graduation, she served as a case manager for a local human service agency, advocating for adjudicated adolescents, in the hopes of one day becoming a high school science educator. It was here she discovered the complexity of our society’s challenges and her motivation to take action. Amy went on to earn a Master of Public Administration in Nonprofit Management from Suffolk University, learning how to harness organizational resources to find solutions to social justice issues.
Amy’s experience in higher education includes Acting Director for Community Service and Service Learning at Suffolk University, and Assistant Director for Community-Based Learning at Lasell College. Through these roles, she supported service programming, encouraged leadership development through service, led international and domestic service-learning trips, fostered mutually beneficial community partnerships and programs, and has been extensively involved in efforts to green institutions of higher education. She believes service can come in all forms, from building homes to sharing a story and a smile.
Amy encourages all members of Lesley University to share their time and talents in the world by connecting with the Office of Community Service. She also welcomes leaders and organizations in Cambridge and Greater Boston to actively consider Lesley University as a partner in identifying and addressing community challenges while recognizing and celebrating community successes.
