2022

My name is Kevin Ballen, and I'm a Junior originally from Boston living in Currier House and studying Sociology. This year, I am excited to serve as the IOP's Vice President. Before my role as VP, I served as one of the Co-Chairs of the Harvard Votes Challenge, working towards 100% voter registration, engagement, and turnout across Harvard's campus and beyond. Over this next year, I am looking forward to defining the IOP's membership experience, promoting opportunities for student leadership and innovation, strengthening pathways into public service, and ensuring the IOP serves as a civic hub not only for our Harvard community, but for young people across the country. Before coming to Harvard, I worked for two years running youth civic and social-emotional learning programming in the Boston area. On Campus, I plan events for the College Events Board, teach laughter yoga, and eat a lot of Chinese food!
