Max Coppola was raised on the south shore of Long Island, NY. Growing up, Max always wondered about the choices made that caused communities to be so different. Max realized that even though everyone had ideas, some might not have the resources available to see them through. Now, Max serves as an Ingram Scholar, intent on changing this by working with organizations that help give everyone the tools to succeed. Max has pursued this goal through work in the education sector, helping students realize broad possibilities in their most formative years by supporting them with classroom resources.
Max is passionate about creating an environment of economic opportunity and mobility, and ensuring that everyone has a chance to make novel societal contributions. In order to do this, Max believes it is vital to support students whose horizons are wide and whose imaginations are even wider. Of course, the challenges of each community and individual are unique, which is why Max has prioritized deeply understanding the context within his service and makes a constant effort to make no assumptions when entering into a new service project.
Max is excited to continue finding new ways to make a positive impact on communities and people.
