Ricardo has been a dedicated volunteer to ServiceSource since 2015. Every week, he visits our Springfield, Virginia site and leads both a reading group and Spanish class, helping to teach the participants new and valuable skills. Ricardo also supports the staff by assisting with recreational and leisure activities, including expressive therapy sessions such as music and dance. During his time with us, Ricardo has given over 300 hours of service; helping to enhance our programs. In November of 2016, ServiceSource was proud to nominate Ricardo as the Volunteer of the Year Award recipient at the Annual Community Inclusion Award Ceremony for the Virginia Region. This was the first internal volunteer award for the newly launched Volunteer Department and Ricardo was the perfect person to represent everything the program values in service, leadership, and community inclusion.
