One of Priscilla's key responsibilities is being the Children’s Peace Formation Coordinator at On Earth Peace. Other responsibilities she had was being an active member of Valley Open Doors as well as working at Cat's Cradle and being a team member of the organization.
On Earth Peace
On Earth Peace (OEP) focuses on supporting people who are working for justice and peace, helping them to develop as leaders in their communities. Priscilla's primary role at OEP has centered on helping promote the children’s program at OEP. Her most recent project is the Read Aloud Project where people from the community record themselves reading a children’s book, helping to establish trust between people and the community.

Cat’s Cradle’s mission is to ensure and maintain a safe, compassionate community for cats in the Shenandoah Valley. There, Priscilla cleaned cages, facilitated adoptions, and helped in the adoption process by posting pictures of adoptable cats on Snapchat. She also learned to conduct background checks on potential adopters and gained experience posting on social media.

ON EARTH PEACE IMPACT
"At OEP, I have learned how to create and manage a project. The Read Aloud Project was created to provide educational resources on peace and justice during the COVID-19 pandemic. The response from the community has been great, so we decided to extend the project through June and possibly through July. I have enjoyed connecting with members of the community."
