#USAgingHere4You: Rebecca LevineAging Innovations & Achievement Awards program; facilitating peer learning and connection between USAging members; and supporting member training, engagement and external affairs activities. As Senior Program Manager, engAGED: The National Resource Center for Engaging Older Adults, Rebecca helps identify and disseminate resources and best practices to help the Aging Network increase the social engagement of older adults.
Prior to joining USAging, Rebecca attended graduate school for social work and completed an internship at USAging (then n4a) focused on volunteer engagement.
“At the conclusion of my internship, I learned that USAging was hiring a Membership and Outreach Associate. When I read the job description it felt like the perfect fit for me given the mission of USAging and the chance to be connected to the local level through the work of our members. I applied and have been with USAging ever since.”
Rebecca's favorite part about working at USAging is the people. For her, it is a privilege to build relationships with staff and members who are kind, passionate, genuine and hard-working. In her nine years, she's learned the importance of teamwork, collaboration and relationships. As USAging has grown over time, she has seen the organization maintain a supportive and an all-hands on deck culture where everyone is happy to pitch in and help one another. Rebecca notes that this attitude is also reflected in our members.
“Through my work on both the Membership and engAGED teams, I hope to make an impact on our members and the Aging Network by connecting them to best and emerging practices. Collaboration and shared learning are some of the many benefits of having a national association, and there are so many innovative examples throughout our network that can serve as inspiration for others.”
Rebecca wants members to always feel like they can come to her with any questions they may have. Whether they want to connect to a peer, learn more about what others are doing around a specific topic or just want to know who they should reach out to within USAging, she's always happy to help.
Outside of USAging, Rebecca loves to read; she read over 100 books last year! She loves any book by Katherine Center. She also enjoys the Normal Gossip podcast and loves to watch When Harry Met Sally.
