A Strong Farewell & Congratulations to National Program Director
Posted by Kayla Peck Apr 4, 2013 Program Director, SPARKS!, Staff
After more than seven years with Strong Women, Strong Girls, Meghan Trombly is taking on a new role: Director of Programming for Generation Citizen. Meghan will bring her considerable talent and experience to help Generation Citizen evolve and scale their national program. Generation Citizen empowers young people to become engaged and effective citizens by partnering college students with classroom teachers to teach civic engagement and resolve problems facing today’s teens.
During her career with Strong Women, Strong Girls, Meghan held various positions including Boston Program Manager, National Director of Operations, and National Program Director. Reflecting on her experiences with SWSG and what she will bring with her to this new role, Meghan commented, “Strong Women, Strong Girls has afforded me so many opportunities I wouldn’t have had anywhere else. I have experienced all sides of a nonprofit early in my career. I am very appreciative and will take with me so many learnings, including the importance of communication and supportive collaboration, the commitment to excellence and a focus on continuous improvement.”
One of Meghan’s most memorable experiences while at SWSG is the summer the Boston team ran a camp program with less than a month to plan. The night before the counselor training, Meghan and SWSG Founder Lindsay Hyde stayed up nearly all night printing and assembling training manuals and preparing other program details. Everything about the experience, including embracing an innovative opportunity, collaborating toward positive outcomes and committing extra time to be sure the program is high quality, would set the standard for Meghan’s work with SWSG.
The Strong Women, Strong Girls community honors Meghan’s accomplishments while at SWSG and looks forward to celebrating her success in her new role! Good luck, Meghan! You will be missed.
