Office Coordinator / Spanish Outreach
Emily Rueber graduated from Georgia Southern University in Statesboro, Georgia in 2016. After graduation, she gained valuable experience working with marginalized, rural communities as an international volunteer of the ELCA Young Adults in Global Mission program during 11 months working for Sarar Transformación, S.C. which is a prominent non‐profit WASH development consulting agency that has facilitated projects financed by the United Nations (UN) Development Program, UN HABITAT, and the Stockholm Environmental Institute. Most recently, Sarar completed the "El agua nos beneficia a todos" project in July 2017 that was funded by Green Cross International and Giorgio Armani’s Acqua for Life campaign in which Emily published the project updates to social media, recorded community workshops, and compiled data analysis. Emily also assisted in editing various grant applications for Sarar. She assisted in facilitating a workshop at the Agua para todos conference in Xalapa, Veracruz, Mexico in October 2016, workshops co‐sponsored by Sarar Capacitacion,A.C. and La Jugarreta, A.C., and was an assistant editor for the Spanish translation of the UN Sustainable Development Goal No. 6.
When Emily was not working for Sarar Transformación, she spent time accompanying the sponsored children's programs of La Jugarreta, A.C. which is a non‐governmental organization founded upon the UN Rights of the Child that provides after school programs, math and English tutoring programs, and an annual Festival del Juego for all kids and kids‐at‐heart in Tepoztlán, Morelos, Mexico.
Previously Emily has been an intern for the Brunswick/Glynn County Judicial Circuit Public Defender and the RockTenn Corporation. She is also a lifetime member of the Girl Scouts.
