Service Member of the Month Spotlight: Devante Lewis

Posted By Amy Cimo, Emersyn Consulting, Monday, February 25, 2019

As one of Forum 35’s core pillars, Service is important to us. We’re dedicated to giving back and improving Baton Rouge through service projects and volunteer opportunities. Each month, we feature an actively involved Service Committee member who goes above and beyond and is committed to making a larger impact on our community.

 

This month we’re so happy to introduce Davante Lewis, of Louisiana Budget Project. Davante is committed to continuing great things within the Service Committee and we’re glad he’s part of Forum 35. He is a great asset to the Service team and always has a smile on his face. Keep reading to learn more about Davante.

 

 

How long have you been a member of Forum 35?

 

I have been a member of Forum for a year now

 

How did you hear about Forum 35?

 

I heard about Forum through friends who are active members of the board and at the Young Professionals Fair.

 

Why did you choose to get involved with the Forum 35 Service committee?

 

Service is something I love to do and care deeply about. The service committee allows you to stay connected with Forum and the Community.

 

What has been your favorite thing about Forum or Service since jumping in?

 

The multiple options to volunteer and be active in Baton Rouge. I can always find an event or project to lend a hand to when I wanted to do something. 

 

Where is your hometown and how did you end up in Baton Rouge?  

 

I am originally from Lake Charles, LA and I moved to Baton Rouge when I took my job at the Louisiana Budget Project.

 

What's your favorite thing about Baton Rouge?

 

I love the food. There are so many great options for things to eat. But I also love going to the river to walk off all the food I have eaten.

 

Tell us a little about your profession and what you do.

 

I am the Public Affairs and Outreach Coordinator at the Louisiana Budget Project. We are a non-profit policy firm that works on issues that affect low and moderate income families in Louisiana. I lead all our legislative and community engagement as well as Higher Education Policy. 

 

Do you have any hobbies?

 

I love to watch CSPAN and reality TV. I also enjoy bowling and site seeing. 

 

 

What are you most looking forward to while being a part of the Service Committee?  (Or what do you hope to gain/accomplish by being a part of the Forum 35?)

 

I hope to get better acclimated to the community I am now part of. I truly to hope to build strong relationships with other young professionals who try to make this community better for the next group.
