Grace wanted to work for Price Hill Will because she heard a little bit about what they do and she was impressed! She has never worked for a company that was so involved with helping the community. So far, she has learned that this is a very hands-on organization and that it is filled with employees and volunteers to help make it run! The work that Price Hill Will does is not for the faint-of-heart but gives you a sense of purpose beyond words. Price hill Will has helped her to meet and communicate with people. They are also very purpose-driven. Life is too short not to love your job, and Grace certainly loves it here!
Beth wanted to work for Price Hill Will because she was interested in the work community development corporations like Price Hill Will. She wanted to understand the role they have in communities and in Cincinnati. She was interested in the different ways Price Hill Will is helping the neighborhood through economic, social, and physical development. Price Hill Will focuses on helping residents of the neighborhood find resources they need and connect with the other members of their community. Beth loved the idea of helping spread our message and connecting residents.
Grace is updating the website and taking snapshots of the neighborhood at community events throughout the summer. She will be reorganizing and designing our website and social media to keep the neighborhood better informed. Beth is working on connecting Price Hill Will with local Price Hill residents and businesses.
