Let me introduce myself...
My name is Bryan Duffey. Most people call me Duff or some variation. I consider myself to be a pretty chill guy that needs God’s grace every minute of my life.
I was born and raised in Alliance, on the west side of Nebraska, where I played football, basketball, soccer, and baseball; and was involved in my youth group.
After high school I decided to attend Northwestern College in Orange City, Iowa, where I played soccer and recently graduated with a Christian Ed./Youth Ministry degree. I love being outdoors and pushing my body to its limit.
I have worked with kids for many years by coaching soccer, leading small groups at youth group, and volunteering for youth events. I have also volunteered my spring breaks to serve at other non-profit organizations in Lindale, TX; Denver, CO; Jonesboro, AR; and Belo Horizonte, Brazil.
I have always wanted to work with a non-profit organization. Back in November, my friend was attending a wedding in New Orleans and invited me to tag along and check out Opelousas and HFO. When we came down in December, we learned a lot about the organization and got to experience Southern culture. I returned home and after a few months of thinking I decided to start my post-graduate life as a Grace Corps Intern with a one-year commitment to HFO.
I am excited to learn, grow, and share alongside the organization and community. If you need a listening ear I am more than happy to listen.
