Michael Klaser, a Project Manager at Peak, has been volunteering with America Needs You (ANY) since 2021. ANY pairs ambitious first-generation college students with mentors in a variety of industries and provides transformative mentorship and intensive career development. In addition to frequent formal and informal mentoring, students in the program attend monthly Saturday workshops with their mentors and ANY Staff to practice resume writing, public speaking, elevator pitches, and a wide variety of other professional development topics. In September 2022, Michael joined the Associate Board of ANY New Jersey with a seat on the fundraising committee. On Giving Tuesday 2022, Michael was the top individual fundraiser for the entire organization, which has active chapters in Los Angeles, Chicago, New York City and New Jersey. Michael continues to serve on the ANY Associate Board and his current mentee, a junior at New Jersey Institute of Technology (NJIT), has secured TWO internships for this summer!
