Sarah Whitt

Position: Administrative Assistant

I started with Open Hand my senior year of college. I assisted the PEARLS classrooms by helping with classroom activities and even created presentations for events Open Hand put on. In the Spring of 2022, I started working with GRAD and became the right-hand man to the former Programs Manager. Currently, I am working as the administrative assistant of Open Hand to help push the non-profit to big and better opportunities.

Besides working for Open Hand, I am a behavioral clinician for Compass Counseling Services and help children with a range for neurological disorders learn skills to better their way of living. In a way that job is very similar to Open Hand. Through Open Hand, I am able to help the surrounding area youth learn career readiness skills to help them later in their lives. It has truly been a blessing to be able to work for Open Hand. I have enjoyed being able to empower youth by helping them become more confident and help them find their purpose.
