Lauren O'Sullivan

"NexGenFriends" is the perfect name to describe the group! When tossing around possible names at an outreach meeting, 'NexGenFriends' just popped into my head! We were discussing the motivations of any individual, regardless of age, to volunteer at the Kennedy Center. Everyone agreed that a love of the arts, and a belief that giving back as a volunteer feeds the soul, was a commonality among all Friends, and that passing the love for the arts and volunteering to the next generation is an important part of our motivation as well. No matter what age, all Friends are united in our dedication to serving the Kennedy Center and the community at large."
