Appointee Profile: Shelby Ostrom


Shelby Ostrom has been appointed to the Kansas Volunteer Commission. Shelby currently manages the Donor Network for young professionals at United Way, an organization promoting economic opportunity in the Greater Kansas City area.

Since 1993, the Kansas Volunteer Commission has been promoting community service and volunteerism. As an appointee, Shelby will be responsible for helping to administer grants to the AmeriCorps and Volunteer Generation Fund programs in Kansas.

Shelby encourages any woman wanting to get involved with the Appointments Project to tackle the opportunity to serve head-on.

By serving, I hope to encourage other young professional women to stand up and serve as well. Our voices deserve to be heard!
