Growing up wanting to be a teacher, Delia Smola now channels her passion for fostering the professional growth of others as a Global Learning and Organizational Development Professional. She shares her superpowers with the community through Taproot Team Projects.
A sense of community
I’m inspired when I see and feel that I am contributing to community and global unity. I found Taproot Foundation during a period of my life where I was seeking an opportunity to better connect with my local community. Now with several team projects under my belt, I can sum up my experience doing pro bono in just one word – connected.
The world feels kinder and more peaceful even after completing just one pro bono project. Each project I’ve worked on has united me with a team of passionate community members – both nonprofit staff members and fellow business professionals. You start each project as strangers, but after the first meeting, you become a dynamic team of unstoppables.
Become a superhero
Helping nonprofits through my pro bono efforts is an opportunity to create a legacy, one that I hope inspires the children of my family to embrace giving and sharing. Having now given over 100 hours of my time pro bono for various nonprofits, I celebrate the kindness, professionalism, and commitment of every one of the social good organizations I’ve collaborated with.
We all have super powers to share. Taproot creates a place for us to be heroes.
