Victoria Barnum ’16 and Jack Loomis ’16


Back to All Spotlights


Core Team Leader, Outdoor Volunteer Efforts, and Little Brother/Little Sister

What involvement did/do you have with MOVE? What program did/do you volunteer with and/or lead? What years?
Little Brother, Little Sister – we both had involvement with this; Victoria was a program coordinator.

Jack had his work study in MOVE – acted as a catch all for various programs. Jack also helped build the partnership between MOVE and organic garden / environmental education.

There were many other programs MOVE touched on or collaborated with where we helped out or benefited from your great work!

What’s your MOVE story?
For us, MOVE started as ad-hoc volunteering and quickly evolved into something of a lifestyle. We were always doing something with MOVE, because it’s such a cultural staple and a great example of how you can contribute to a community.

In what ways did/does MOVE impact you?
The concept of “think globally, act locally” affects the work we do, our philosophies, and the choices we make. MOVE is inextricably linked to our identities now and always.
