Molly Mattessich – Ambassador

Molly Mattessich launched and now manages the online platforms for the National Peace Corps Association, Africa Rural Connect and Peace Corps Connect. She also leads many of the Association’s public relations, marketing, and business development initiatives for the largest nonprofit organization that supports the Peace Corps volunteer community.

Molly continues to be a huge supporter of the Africa Gathering program since its mission is aligned with that of Africa Rural Connect, namely, bringing people together to share ideas that empower people living in Africa.  She has presented at Africa Gathering in three different cities including London, England (2009), Nairobi, Kenya (2009) and Washington, DC (2010).

Her work on Africa Rural Connect is profiled in the 2010 book Empowered: Unleash Your Employees, Energize Your Customers, and Transform Your Business by Josh Bernoff and Ted Schadler of Forrester Research.  In 2010, Molly presented Africa Rural Connect at a forum for African Diaspora community leaders in the Pacific Northwest at the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation.  She is presenting at the State Department in the spring of 2010, along with Marieme Jamme, to offer her take on using social media in Africa.

From 2002-2004, Molly served as a Peace Corps Volunteer in Mali, West Africa, where she initiated a market clean-up venture, educated villagers on how to prevent water and food-borne illnesses, and became fluent in Bambara and Malinké. Her current role managing Africa Rural Connect is a legacy to the two years that she spent in the Peace Corps and she hopes that her work will continue to impact smallholder farmers like those that were in her village in Mali.

Molly earned a degree in psychology from Wellesley College.  She recently was named as one of “10 Changemakers to Follow on Twitter” by the Matador Network.
