Welcome Blog: Yusuf

My name is Yusuf Shah, and I am a Volunteer Management and Outreach intern for Meals on Wheels Durham. I am excited to be back in my hometown.


I am a recent graduate of UNC-Pembroke. I graduated with a degree in Exercise and Sports Science. I will be going back in the fall for a Master of Arts with a concentration in Exercise/Sports Administration. While there I was involved with the Football Support Staff. In my free time, I like to play video games, watch YouTube videos, and watch sports.


I am a part of this program called PYO (Partners for Youth Opportunity) and they help students with career-building and financial literacy opportunities. I was hired here about three years ago as an intern and I came back when I was out of school.


One of my favorite parts of working at Meals on Wheels is my coworkers, they are awesome people and treat me like family. I also love to meet the volunteers and talk with the clients to hear about the impact Meals on Wheels Durham has had on them.
