Adanech Devenouges, Program Associate

Motivated by the rewarding pursuit of contributing to the nonprofit sector, Adanech joined the Center’s team in August 2022. She is excited to interact with our entire community as she coordinates the Center programs, partnerships and memberships.

Adanech is a firm believer in being a team-player and is always willing to challenge herself. Her varied work experience—ranging from full-time nanny to process guide at Amazon—has sharpened her creativity, flexibility and ability to prioritize and complete tasks efficiently.

A strong passion for taking action and engaging with diverse communities led Adanech to volunteer work. She’s currently a volunteer leader at the Potomac Conservancy, a nonprofit that coordinates cleanups for the Potomac River. Getting her hands dirty for the purpose of making the river a healthier, cleaner body of water has been deeply enriching.

Adanech feels inspired by the opportunity to aid the Center in its mission to support the positive impact of its nonprofit members.
