Community Service Award

Congratulations to our 2022 Community Service Award Winner: Jennifer Di Capua

 

The Junior League of Greenwich presented this year’s Community Service Award to Jennifer Di Capua, an 11th grade student at Sacred Heart Greenwich.

Her volunteerism is rooted in observation, initiative and leadership. Some of her roles include serving as a grade level community service ambassador, Founder and President of the Women in Leadership Club, and founding member and Head of the Middle School Peer Branch Committee as well as the 3DNYC Summer Service participant and Scared Heart Greenwich summer outreach volunteer.

Perhaps one of Jennifer’s most interesting pursuits is her founding and development of an app and website entitled Salud Por Todos. This platform enables Latinx immigrants to easily access healthcare providers.

Jennifer plans to use the award to develop educational programs for immigrants.
