Civic Engagement Program Organizer
Dina Kanso serves as the Civic Engagement Program Organizer. She graduated from the University of Michigan Dearborn with a degree in health and human services. She dedicated her college career to mental health awareness and social health awareness. During her four years at the University of Michigan, Dina served as an executive board member on more than three student organizations – all pertaining to civic engagement. Before joining the Planned Parenthood of Michigan team, I was a case manager in the social services department with the nonprofit organization, ACCESS. As a caseworker working for an Arab American nonprofit organization, the position gave me a unique insight to use my Arabic language. From translating to conducting interpersonal services, I was able to develop a concise understanding of my community needs, and ways to narrow the communication barrier when serving my community.
