Arielle Hirt

Volunteer Manager

A consistent thread in my life has been working with children. From a camp counselor to a theatre director for at-risk youth, I have found the most meaning in my interactions with kids. I graduated from DePauw University with a major in English writing and a minor in theatre and my entire career has been in the nonprofit sector. Brightlane Learning is the perfect joining of my passion for youth, especially those that are continuously underserved, and nonprofit work.

Education shapes what we become. It gives children access to the world by unleashing curiosity, unlocking skillsets, and equipping them with the tools to communicate and create change. Beyond the financial impact, education creates a support system that validates self-worth and empowers learners.
