New Pioneers Update

Highlighting our Education Coordinator,
esteemed Board Member, programs and resources 

Welcome Jane!
Following a month-long search that garnered interest from across the country, we are pleased to welcome Education Coordinator Jane Rudnick to the New Pioneers team. 

Jane will assist New Pioneers with communications and outreach efforts, including establishing a youth sustainability program in our tri-County region. “I’m looking forward to building relationships in the community and educating others about sustainable living,” she said, “I’m also excited to see the youth program take off!”

Jane holds a B.A. in Communications and M.S. in Digital Media from Bellarmine University. This summer, she worked with Catholic Charities of Louisville to provide resources and programming for refugee families.  She will work with New Pioneers through August 2021 in a partnership with AmeriCorps’ Environmental Education Leadership Corps.
