Drew Subits (Crew Leader)drew-rinaldi-subits

Drew Rinaldi Subits joined us last cohort as a Parks and Recreation crew leader. Prior to that, he had been a Social Studies teacher throughout Philadelphia for 8 years, serving students in both public and charter schools, as well as coaching soccer, basketball, football, and track & field. He also began and facilitated youth leadership programs such as youth congress, peer mediation, chess, and gardening/outdoors clubs at the various schools in which he worked. He loves working with youth because he loves their energy and it inspires him when young people make positive decisions to better themselves and those around him. He loves doing hands-on environmental work because it helps to reconnect people with the most basic elements of life and nature, and most importantly because now the future depends on it.

Drew studied Journalism, Political Science, and History at Temple University, where he was also a two-year member of the Men’s Soccer Team. He later went back to Temple to earn his Master’s Degree in Social Studies Education. He is originally from Allentown, PA.

What do you want to do after PowerCorpsPHL? Or who do you aspire to be?
“I just want to be successful and proud of myself and who I’ve become. I want to be a person that earns respect by being positive and by actually achieving my goals.”

Kalef is proud of himself and the path that he is on because he feels that if he continues on this path, he can become something great. He describes himself as quiet, observant, ambitious and confident. Above all else, he prides himself for his strength and determination that he won’t be led astray from his future goals. Kalef is excited that PowerCorpsPHL points members in the right direction while giving them the opportunity to find themselves as people.
