Member Spotlights: We Will Go

Ashten Jones | Engagement Director
We Will Go
Jackson, MS

At We Will Go, we like to make serving as easy as it is to be a good neighbor. It doesn’t take much to be a neighbor and it doesn’t take much to serve. We equip volunteers to do this through our Education and Essential Food programs every single day. Last year we were able to impact over 200 students through our year-round Education programs and over 15,000 people through our Essential Food program. We couldn’t have done it without Engagement, which really isn’t me as the Director of Engagement, but it’s people just like you who come alongside to help us engage our community.

It’s always encouraging to see countless volunteers who have stories of how they thought their experience was just about helping others, but it seemed to be helping them in more ways than one. As volunteer month is upon us, get involved at a place where you can make an impact and even be impacted. If you want to engage your community with the love of Christ or learn more about We Will Go, go to

This summer, I joined thought leaders from Mississippi and across the country in the FutureGood Studio’s futurism training program. It was transformational. This experience redefined my outlook, both professionally as a nonprofit leader and on a personal level. It fundamentally altered the way I approach work and staff engagement and envision the future for both myself and the clients we serve.
