A Quote from a KNA VISTA: “I feel so lucky to have had the opportunity of being a VISTA for Kenmore Neighborhood Alliance. I learned so much about working for a non-profit company, I learned a lot about an underrepresented community, and I acquired many transferable skills that I can apply to future jobs. I think this is such a unique opportunity. The connections I made with Kenmore residents and business owners are connections I hope to keep forever. The staff at KNA are so kind and welcoming and they really helped mentor me for this position. The atmosphere of the workplace is fun, exciting and fast pace. I am so grateful for my time and experience with Kenmore Neighborhood Alliance.” – Abigail Stopka
