Nicholas's Service Bio
At Holy Name School in Camden, New Jersey, I taught Spanish to grades K-8. Though many came from families where Spanish was spoken, few knew how to read or write the language. At 'Make the Road by Walking' in Brooklyn, New York, I worked with Latina immigrant women whose welfare benefits had been terminated navigate the court system to have their benefits reinstated.
A Decade Later:
In 2000, Nick Madsen left Seattle to serve for two years with Jesuit Volunteer Corps, first as a teacher in New Jersey, and then providing legal assistance to immigrant women in Brooklyn, New York. At our Conference, Nick participated in a panel with other older mentors who reflected on challenges faced and how grace shapes their commitments to “service as a way of life.” For Nick, who applies his Masters in Social Work to serving people who are HIV+ in Philadelphia, resilience and grace were encountered most often alongside his most complex and challenging clients. Now a Case Management Supervisor at ActionAIDS, Nick was recently named an Emerging Leader by United Way.
