Executive Director and Outgoing Volunteer Placements: Amy Bannon
This is Amy's eleventh year at VFP. She is currently Executive Director and still coordinating outgoing volunteer placements. She holds degrees in political science and environmental law and has worked as an attorney, editor, and landscape designer. Along with international service activities, her local voluntary service includes many years with Windsor Country Partners youth mentoring, and various projects with Vermont Fish and Wildlife, Vermont Center for Ecostudies, Mt. Ascutney Audubon Society, and Americares. She and her husband John are the parents of three boys. Her favorite activities include hiking, backcountry skiing, bird watching and canoeing.
"What ends up in the news, such as this Madonna story, helps bring these issues into people's consciousness and often leads them to volunteer," said Amy Bannon, a placement officer for Volunteers for Peace, a nonprofit group in Vermont (802-259-2759, www.vfp.org).
Working mothers or not, residents in the Rutland area and in towns across Vermont are rarely asked to contribute to their communities — for the most part, they just do it, as if volunteerism came naturally, according to Amy Bannon, director of Belmont-based organization Volunteers for Peace.
Bannon said she has experienced how Vermont gives firsthand. Arriving back home in Ludlow after giving birth for the first time, Bannon said she was greeted by the community with a huge box of baby gifts and homemade clothing. "Here, the sense of community is still very strong, more so than in other places across the country where you have suburbia," she said. "It doesn't matter what political party you come from or what your educational background is, it has been part of the Vermont culture forever — that everybody helped everybody else." To honor volunteers in Vermont and around the world, Bannon and Volunteers for Peace are helping promote today as International Volunteer Day, a day set aside by the United Nations since 1985 to honor those who give back.
