Mathias Quackenbush, Psychology, Class of 2011

Throughout nearly his entire time at Reed, Quackenbush volunteered as a mentor with SEEDS LASER Program, working both with groups and one-on-one. He was also a classroom intern and ran study skills groups to help support and motivate middle schoolers to stay engaged and successful at school. Later, inspired by Kris Anderson’s Clinical Psychology Class, Quackenbush began volunteering with Oregon Partnership’s Suicide Prevention, Drug and Alcohol, Military Veterans, and Youth crisis lines, providing mental health resources and emotional support to callers. Quakenbush also volunteered with VOZ, teaching English to Spanish-speaking immigrant day laborers in Northeast Portland.
