As we start another day in our office, Yemi comes in smiling and ready for another day of volunteering. Yemi is a one of a kind volunteer who has been such a great asset to the Retrofit team. With over 11 years of experience, he has helped us create and launch our IT system to better serve the Baltimore and its homeowners. Not only has he helped bring Retrofit Baltimore to the technological world with his expertise, but he has also been helpful in giving us advice from his past experiences on how to connect to homeowners and community organizing.
Before committing to Retrofit Baltimore, Yemi served as an AmeriCorps VISTA. After serving his term, he decided to volunteer with us because of his trong belief in our social mission. Not only does he find time to help us, but he also is dedicated to mentoring future generations by coaching football to kids around the Baltimore area. Yemi makes these enormous contributions to his city while raising two young boys. Isiah and Elijiah bring smiles to our team when they join their dad at our office for volunteer work. Yemi represents the best in Baltimore: a father who knows that service is a powerful force for good and the best possible example to his kids.
Once again, thank you Yemi for your countless efforts and hours. We, the Retrofit Team, thank you.
