In 2018, the world needs people with outstanding empathy and leadership skills to improve at-risk communities and our evolving environment. As the world changes all around us at a rapid pace, it’s easy to get overwhelmed by the day-to-day stresses, but for our future, it’s important to remember to take time to help others. When it comes to putting others first, few people have the compassion and dedication of Jeffry Schneider. As a graduate from the University of Massachusetts Amherst, Jeffry Schneider was taught the significance of leadership as well as community service. The university, founded in 1863, has a longtime mission dedicated to those values, and the UMass Community Action Service through Leadership and Service (UMass CALLS) is an essential part of the curriculum that Jeffry completed while attending. Even after graduating from UMass, Jeff continued to give back to his community.
He made it his mission for decades to positively impact the lives of others in a multitude of ways and today, he continues to leave a legacy of giving. Whether he’s volunteering his time to local nonprofits, teaching kids how to live a purpose-driven life, or helping others hone their leadership skills, Jeffry stays committed to self-esteem and personal development. Jeffry has also made it his mission in life to help people of all backgrounds live healthier lives. An avid supporter of health and wellness programs, Jeffry and his children not only participate in these programs, but they also help others get involved too.
Jeffry Schneider believes that if we want to make a positive impact on our world, we must build stronger communities but knows that accomplishing this requires a strong, experienced leader. Fortunately, Jeffry is more than up for the task as over the years, he’s supported numerous organizations during community improvement projects. Continuing this initiative, Jeffry focuses a lot of his time on helping communities improve individual personal wellness and self-esteem. Whether he’s volunteering his time at a local charitable organization or participating in a marathon, health seminar, or another community event, Jeffry leads by example and seeks to strengthen communities.
In addition to uplifting and leading communities, Jeffry leads his team at work to success. The fundamental principle of leadership is to help others achieve a desired aspiration, and at the core of any effective leader is the capacity to bring out the best in others while focusing them on the targeted outcome. Leaders are the most influential part of any business as they must guide their team towards the company’s overarching goal which for some can be complex. Regardless of the vision, an effective leader always keeps the team’s focus on the business objective, and Jeff exemplifies this in his own life. Jeff strives to create a positive work environment that empowers employees to focus on the task at hand while working at peak efficiency. Jeff does this by implementing companywide wellness programs and maintaining a friendly, open office culture.
Business holds a special place in Jeff Schneider’s heart, but his real passion is helping children. Since he understands that kids hold the key to the world’s wellbeing, Jeffry devotes himself to enriching kid’s lives everywhere. Whether he’s reading to kids at local schools, participating in wellness events, or volunteering his time at facilities for abused and neglected children, Jeffry is always finding ways to help today’s youth. Jeff stands out as a philanthropist as he believes first and foremost in helping those who help others. Specifically, Jeff sponsors individuals who have a solid commitment to helping the less fortunate in their community and around the world.
Jeff continues to focus his energy on his altruistic mission and is always ready to extend his philanthropic reach. Knowing every day is a gift and an opportunity to help someone else, he puts others first, making the world a better place in which to live.
