Beyond his professional career and personal interests, Mitchell Aulds-Stier is also a passionate community activist and volunteer.
Throughout his life, Mitchell Aulds-Stier has found many leadership and mentoring opportunities while volunteering with a number of organizations. Some of the organizations he has worked with over the years include:
– United Way of Central Indiana
While in Indianapolis completing his undergraduate education, Mitchell Aulds-Stier began working with United Way of Central Indiana. His responsibilities included compiling presentations for events as well as conducting research and publishing a report focusing on the advancements in donor acquisition and retention strategies.
– Housing Authority of the City of Winston-Salem
While pursuing his career in Winston-Salem, Mitchell Aulds-Stier and his colleagues lobbied for funds from BB&T to complete a minor renovation of a local senior housing complex.
Mitchell Aulds-Stier has always felt that giving back to his community is very important. One organization that really touches his heart is Blessings in a Backpack. We have more than 16 million children throughout the United States that do not have food to eat at home on a regular basis. If more people, like Mitch come together with Blessings in a Backpack, we can put an end to childhood hunger.
–Community Food Bank
Mitchell Aulds-Stier and his colleagues spend several days each year at a local food bank to help package food for families in need.
– Junior Achievement
With some of his colleagues, Mitchell Aulds-Stier became involved with JA where he spent two nights per week for six weeks at the Carnegie Library – Sheraden Branch, a severely economically disadvantaged location in the outer limits of the city.
Mitchell Aulds-Stier bonded with the librarians during his time volunteering with JA and decided to get involved with ‘Reading Buddies’, a newly created program to provide the local children with positive role models. Since February 2016, Mitchell Aulds-Stier has spent three to four days per month at the library with the kids participating in a variety of activities. Most recently, he has helped create a chess club that has been enthusiastically received by the kids. In order to advance his understanding of the issues and dynamics of the local population, Mitchell Aulds-Stier has also begun a training series with the Mentoring Partnership.
