In 2008, Tara Pullano was introduced to Iskashitaa Refugee Network through a University of Arizona independent study in anthropology. She quickly found her niche! Serving as an AmeriCorps member, Tara was Iskashitaa's Volunteer and Resource Coordinator and launched large scale sewing and crafts classes held at TIARC.
A look back at Tara's tenure with Iskashitaa shows Iskashitaa's growth over the years. Tara served as volunteer coordinator, resource coordinator, and sewing and crafts organizer. These duties now represent three different staff positions - two half-time and one full time as well as a multitude of volunteers (with room for more). In order to sustain our staff, we need continued donor support. Please donate today!
Tara left our staff team to return to Pima Community College and pursue her paralegal degree. She graduated with this degree in December 2011. Throughout this time, Tara continued as our newsletter editor in a volunteer capacity. We are grateful for her volunteer service to help us raise awareness, generate interest, recruit volunteers, and encourage donors. We wish Tara the best of luck in her new career, and hope she will find ways to continue to remain connected to Iskashitaa.
