As a member of the Civic Renewal Team, she is providing strategic leadership with a focus on development, financial and operational

PACE, Philanthropy for Active Civic Engagement, is a learning collaborative for funders doing work in the fields of civic engagement, service and democratic practice.

Through leadership in policy and practice, TCN promotes national and community service as a strategy to revitalize communities, preserve and restore the environment, prepare young people for responsible, productive lives, and build
    civic spirit through service.
    Immediately prior to appointment at TCN, Sally served seven years as Director of the Ohio Civilian Conservation Corps operating two residential and six non-residential programs. During her tenure the Civilian Conservation Corps was recognized for effectiveness by the Annie E. Casey Foundation;one of the premier youth programs in the nation; positively engaging youth and young adults
    exiting incarceration. Prior to her work with Civilian Conservation, she served four years as Deputy Director of the Ohio Department of Natural Resources representing the divisions of Water, Soil and Water Conservation, Geological Survey, Civilian Conservation, Recycling and Litter Prevention, Public Information and Education.
    In addition to 30 years in the public and private sectors, including administrative and faculty positions as a nurse, Sally has held volunteer positions at the local, state, national, and international levels including service on a city board of education and on the founding board of a charter school. 
    She currently serves on the advisory board for Community Renewal International. A Registered Nurse, Prouty also holds a degree in Organizational Communication from Capital University.
