Dylan is from San Diego, California. He attended Loyola Marymount University where he obtained a degree in Psychology. This year he will be serving at HIAS in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. He hopes to have new experiences and opportunities for growth and is excited to explore a new city and build relationships through community and service.
I, Dylan Tagg, commit myself to be an Augustinian Volunteer, by stepping outside of myself, growing with, and serving others.
What led you to a year of service?
I think I chose to undertake a year of service from a desire to grow and mature spiritually and emotionally and experience new things.
