Volunteer Spotlight: Lauren Yoon

This year, Reach the World is thrilled to be engaging in a process to rebuild ReachtheWorld.org for the next ten years of global virtual exchanges. Let's meet one of our key volunteers, whose work and wisdom is helping to shape our path ahead!

Lauren Yoon is a UX designer who is passionate about fostering community and creating opportunity. She also loves to travel and hopes to visit Malaysia one day!

During college, Lauren volunteered as a #PeerMentor, mentoring underclassmen, and as an #EnglishPal, helping international students adjust to college in the US. Additionally, Lauren was a #BigSibling for #BigBrothersBigSisters, where she worked with children to advance their social and academic goals.

As Reach the World's newest designer, Lauren is so excited to improve how RTW teachers and travelers communicate, and to help students nationwide increase their understanding of different places and cultures.

Thank you, Lauren!
