Silvia is a Dartmouth '16, originally from Long Island, NY. The Center for Service has been an integral part of her Dartmouth experience, allowing her to find her passion for women's health and advocacy work, which she hopes to pursue as an aspiring physician. She completed a domestic internship with Planned Parenthood in NY, an international internship with an HIV advocacy nonprofit in the Dominican Republic and the Lewin postgraduate fellowship with a nonprofit that provides vocational training in Buenos Aires, all funded by the Center for Service. She also worked for two years as Student Director of Internships during her time at Dartmouth and is now returning to the Center as the Program Coordinator for Internships & Social Impact Careers.

In her free time, she enjoys tango dancing, reading, drawing and trying out new recipes. She is excited to be back at Dartmouth and to help students explore off-term and postgraduate opportunities with non-profit organizations, both domestically and abroad.

Ashley S. Dailey Ashley Dailey

College Access Coordinator

p. (603) 646-9761

Ashley, new to the Upper Valley, recently moved here from Syracuse, New York.  In partnership with her Americorp VISTA contract, she is responsible for the College Pathways Coordinator position at the Center for Service.  Ashley will specialize in the organization and execution of the SEAD (Summer Enrichment at Dartmouth) program, but will also be a good resource for all things college access, non-profit, and Americorps related, amongst other things.

Born into a family of educators, working in an educational setting is always time well spent for her.  Throughout her college career, Ashley participated in various community work throughout the Upstate and Western New York region, specializing in event and program management, as well as marketing to different non-profits.  She quickly learned, helping others in turn helps you grow yourself.  Partnering her unwavering love for education with her background in the social sector, she finds herself at home at the center and is looking forward to meeting Dartmouth students eager to do similar work.

In her free time, Ashley enjoys spending time outdoors and listening to music, preferably live.  From classic rock, country to hip-hop, the passion runs deep.  She also enjoys watching her beloved Syracuse Orangemen, shoot hoops all winter long.  Any chance to hop on a plane or bus, when time allows, and travel elsewhere Ashley is first in line.  She loves meeting new people and seeing new things.

Ashley T. Doolittle, Ph.D.Ashley Doolittle

Associate Director of Academic and Service Engagement
e. Ashley.T.Doolittle@dartmouth.edu
p. (603) 646-2186

A lifelong enthusiast of most everything, Ashley's insatiable curiosity has led her to discover the joys of pickling , scavenger hunts, the ukulele, meditation, folk music, and flying trapeze, to name a few.  In her more tranquil moments, Ashley loves nothing more than curling up with a book (science-fiction), a giant mug of tea (jasmine), and some chocolate (as dark as she can find).  Now that she and her family have moved to the Upper Valley, Ashley is looking forward to expanding her extracurricular repertoire to include snowshoeing, sugaring, and finding new and delicious ways to appreciate the bounty of her blueberry bushes.

Ashley brings to Dartmouth's Center for Service an extensive history of experiential learning, program management, evaluation, and nonprofit administration. Prior to accepting her current position, Ashley was the Director of Learning and Evaluation at More than Words, a nonprofit social enterprise headquartered in Boston. There, she managed organizational outcomes, collaborated with various stakeholders, provided strategic direction for growth, and monitored the efficacy of programming across two sites. Before that, she managed an experiential learning program for gang-involved teens throughout greater Boston.

Outside of her professional life, Ashley has demonstrated a similar passion for service learning through her volunteer work teaching emotional literacy and mindfulness inside Massachusetts prisons, as a Hospice volunteer, and during her time in North Carolina where she taught youth developmentally-appropriate ways of seeking help from abuse.  In other words, a hallmark of both her professional and personal lives for the past 10 years has been skillfully managing nonprofit programming with young adults while dedicating herself to the wisdom that comes from service learning and engagement with the greater world.

Ashley completed her Ph.D. in Sociology at Duke University and graduated Summa cum Laude with her B.A. from Trinity University in Sociology and French.  When not engaging in one of the aforementioned activities, Ashley can be found frolicking in a park with her young son or playing board games with her husband.

Daniel Sidder Headshot

Program Coordinator

Daniel, a Colorado native, grew up looking to the mountains and big blue skies for inspiration. The grandeur of the western landscapes shaped how he viewed the world: think big, act small. It is with this attitude that he thinks about
service and community engagement.

Prior to joining the Dartmouth Center for Service, Daniel spent close to three years working at an environmental nonprofit in Northern Idaho, two of which were as an AmeriCorps Volunteer. His two terms as an AmeriCorps Volunteer solidified his passion for connecting people, place, and community, and helped propel him forward in a career working to support the social sector.

Daniel graduated from Colorado State University with a BS in Natural Resources Management. If not found in his office, look to the soccer field, mountain biking trails, or ski slopes.

Born and raised in Alaska, Jolene feels right at home in the rugged Upper Valley. If there are mountains, rivers, and forests to explore, that is likely where she'll be found seeking solace or an adrenaline rush! Jolene is an adventure seeker and also a trained Adventure Leader at the College, facilitating groups on the low and high ropes course. 

Jolene joined the Dartmouth Center for Service in September of 2015 and she finds purpose in impacting the community in a positive way. You can count on her to assist with program logistics such as transportation, purchase cards, web content, to help you learn about the driver certification process, event planning, and any other general questions.

Before moving to the Upper Valley, Jolene was the Owner and Director of a start-up, school-age childcare center in Albany, New York from 2007-2015.  Although it was sad to say goodbye to the families and children she served, Jolene was ready for a new challenge and, of course, for a grand adventure.

Stop in to the Dartmouth Center for Service and Jolene will greet you with a smile, likely accompanied by some good tunes. She would love to help you explore the many opportunities to serve, locally, Domestically, and Internationally.
