I thought I'd take some time to introduce myself. I'm Alexus LeVert, born and raised here in Cleveland. I'm a student at Cleveland State University majoring in Nonprofit Administration. I've been working in the library sector for the majority of my academic career as well as volunteering in professional arts institutions. I'm currently not an artist myself but I have a huge appreciation for the arts, especially making sure it's accessible to all groups.
So far my day to day activities include creating content for the website and finding better ways to connect to our community. When deciding on an internship for my final semester of college, I wanted to make sure I'd be working with an organization that is deeply rooted in the needs of the community and making an impact. In the coming week at Art House I'm excited to observe the Urban bright Arts-in-Education program and see the kids in action! At some point, I'd love to engage with them and possibly assist in the teaching of a class.
At the end of my time here at Art House I plan to have a better understanding of the everyday inter-workings of a nonprofit organization and where I fit into the puzzle. I'm excited for this new journey!
