Founder, Next Generation of Service and salesforce & technology consultant
Anna Lenhart became passionate about young people and the role service can play in their lives after completing a term as an AmeriCorps VISTA at Shakti Rising, a social change organization. Her year of service was transformative both personally and professionally, altering her perspective on what matters in life and highlighting her natural skill set. In 2011 she founded the Next Generation of Service, an online alternative career center for young people seeking to participate in a service year. Anna graduated from Carnegie Mellon University with a BA in Civil Engineering and Engineering Public Policy. With her Fulbright Grant she studied sustainable waste management practices in Namibian townships. She has since staked a role in the San Diego community as a Salesforce and technology consultant, working primarily with non-profits through Anani Cloud Solutions. Anna is also actively involved with Citizens Climate Lobby and Run Women Run. She loves surfing, rock climbing, and camping, and has visited 22/53 of the United States National Parks.
