A New Chapter at Save the Harbor!


Revere Beach Sand
Sculpting Event 2021 
Hello everyone!! As you may already know, my name is Aleena Mangham (she/her/hers); I’m sure you have seen me here a lot!! 

            This past August, I finished my fourth summer on the harbor as a Program Assistant. This time around, I’m not working as a summer staff, I’m taking on the position as a Community Engagement Assistant. I’m extremely excited to get to experience the works of Save the Harbor through a completely different lens. While working on the water is my favorite thing to do (as you can tell because I have worked here forever!!), learning how to build connections,
make partnerships, and work “behind the scenes” to help build our programs is going to be a great learning experience for me. I plan to use some of these skills in the future.

Summer 2021 with my team
When not on the harbor, I’m a full time student at Howard University in Washington DC. I’m studying Criminology and Political Science in hopes to work in a job that incorporates prison reform and aiding those who have been wrongfully placed in prison and/or wrongfully sentenced for a minor crime. I have always wanted to work to help people, I just didn’t know how, and I feel like over the past two years I have found my calling--helping fix a broken justice system.

Thanks for reading!

Sea you soon,
