The Possible Project’s mission and work are so aligned with my core belief that all young people, regardless of geography and background, deserve an equal opportunity to thrive personally and professionally.
BOSTON (PRWEB) September 15, 2020
The Possible Project recently announced the appointment of Alisha Collins as their Vice President of Development and Corporate Giving.
The Possible Project is a youth entrepreneurship program serving more than 250 high school students from Boston and Cambridge per year. As they design and launch ventures, students develop an entrepreneurial mindset - key social-emotional learning and professional skills - that prepare them for future education and career success. “The Possible Project’s mission and work are so aligned with my core belief that all young people, regardless of geography and background, deserve an equal opportunity to thrive personally and professionally,” Collins shared.
Collins will lead The Possible Project in strengthening the organization's corporate relationships and funding. This work is critical for the organization’s bold expansion over the next five years to serve 1,000 students per year and launch a new innovation center in Boston.
Executive Director, Becky Levin, offered high praise for Collins: “We are fortunate and thrilled that Alisha is joining our leadership team. Her broad experience, strong connections, and impressive track record are exactly what we need to bring our corporate relationships to the next level.”
Prior to joining The Possible Project, Collins held corporate social responsibility and development positions with The Greater Boston Food Bank, Reebok International, and Blue Cross Blue Shield.
Collins has also served on the boards of Boston Harbor Now, Greater Boston Chamber of Commerce, West End House Boys & Girls Club, and Stonehill College.
“The Possible Project allows me to bring together all my past work experiences and skills from business and youth programs,” Collins said. “I can’t wait to share The Possible Project story, and its transformational work with young people, with the Boston community and beyond.”
Collins holds a Bachelors in Arts in Communications from Stonehill College and remains an active alumna. She received a Masters in Science in Management from Lasell University.
