Sophia Sepp, Program Coordinator

id-photo_seppSophia Sepp joined the Border Servant Corps staff as the program coordinator in September 2015.   Sophia served as a BSC volunteer at Jardin de los Niños from 2014-2015.  Sophia plans to pursue a career in social work, hopefully concentrating on the intersection between social justice and immigration, and sees the Program Coordinator position as a wonderful opportunity for beginning this journey. Throughout her time with Border Servant Corps she has witnessed how the program, its participants, and its coordinators navigate and explore the incredibly unique dynamics that characterize the social justice landscape across the border region. She looks forward to accompanying and supporting volunteers throughout their year of service.
