Volunteer  Spotlight

Hannah Jones is the utility player we never knew we needed! With her quiet, unassuming way, she pitches in to help whenever asked. For Hannah, “Giving back is important because communities need volunteers to flourish.”


As a student herself, Hannah remembers feeling shy and uncertain when she tried new activities. Through soccer, she found an activity that boosted her confidence resulting in her becoming team captain in high school. Because of this experience, “I started volunteering for Start 1 Spark because I really connect with its mission to empower students to find what they are passionate about,” reveals Hannah.


With a degree in marketing from James Madison University, Hannah has utilized her graphic design and photography skills to share Start 1 Spark’s mission. Volunteering with Start 1 Spark has been a creative outlet allowing her to try new techniques and discover different methods. Her favorite part is seeing the creative ways other volunteers inspire students with their encouraging and sweet messages enclosed in Start 1 Spark’s snack kit program.

From photographing events to creating our marketing poster to overseeing snack kit drop-offs, Hannah generously gives her time and talents. As Hannah says, “I think as long as you use your gifts to do good for your community, you’re on the right path.” We are grateful to be on Hannah’s path!
