Meet SCAN Staff Member Charlotte Eure
Charlotte Eure began as a SCAN Intern in 2019 and quickly became an invaluable member of the SCAN team. She now serves as the Community Programs Communications Coordinator and helps make so many things possible within this program including work with the TICNs, SCAN's consultation and training efforts, and special campaigns. We are thankful for her ability to bring warmth, kindness, diligence, and professionalism to everything she does at SCAN!

How did you first get involved with SCAN?
I moved to Richmond from North Carolina in 2018 to attend graduate school at the VCU School of Social Work, where I decided to concentrate in social work administration, planning, and policy practice. When choosing where to apply for my internship, I was drawn to the variety of learning opportunities at SCAN for macro social work. I was also interested in learning more about trauma and resilience, so I was excited to get involved with the Greater Richmond Trauma-Informed Community Network (GRTICN), as SCAN is the backbone organization for the network. I was so happy when Melissa McGinn took me on as the Community Programs intern in August 2019!
What has your life/work experience been that brought you to SCAN? What is your current role?
I’m forever grateful that my internship blossomed into my current role with SCAN as the Communications Coordinator for SCAN’s Community Programs. I get to combine my background in communications with social work through writing and designing reports and briefs, putting together newsletters, coordinating and evaluating our trainings and workshops, and providing support for our team, program director, and the GRTICN and Virginia TICNs (amongst other things!). Currently, one of the big projects I’m coordinating is SCAN’s 13th annual Prevent-a-thon (April 12-16), where we provide as many Stewards of Children trainings for free as we can for Child Abuse Prevention Month. We had to cancel last year’s due to the pandemic, and this year we’re doing it all virtually for the first time. I’ll be facilitating a couple of the trainings myself after becoming a Darkness to Light Authorized Facilitator last year. I’m also involved in planning for the second Resilience Week Virginia (May 2-8) through my work with the GRTICN and VA TICNs, and it’s such an awesome opportunity for creativity and connection.
What inspires you to stay involved with your work at SCAN?
Community Programs does so much vital education around trauma and resilience that is helping to create much-needed systemic and individual change. I get to hear feedback from people who attend our trainings and community events about how positively impacted they are by what they learned and that they feel empowered to change how they interact with others. I’ve interviewed people who have led incredible organizational shifts as a result of what they’ve learned, and it gives me so much hope. I’m also always inspired by the brilliance, kindness, and dedication of all my colleagues at SCAN.
Is there anything you wish other people knew about SCAN?
There’s so much work going on behind the scenes to ensure that SCAN is upholding its values and mission. There’s a consistent sense of engagement and emergence - an understanding that there’s always room to learn and grow to best meet the needs of the community and of staff and volunteers as well. It’s also an incredibly supportive and trauma-informed work environment, and that really shapes the work we’re able to do. 

Are you involved with any other community organizations, hobbies, or activities?
I’m a part of the Racial Truth and Reconciliation VA Coalition and am dedicated to anti-racist practice, knowing it is a lifelong process. It was amazing to work on Racial Truth and Reconciliation Week last year and I’m so grateful there are opportunities to continue being involved. I love spending time outdoors, dancing, watching movies, and enjoying delicious vegan meals with my partner. I like to joke that I’m a professional aunt - I have eight nieces and nephews ranging from 18 months old to 19 years old, and I absolutely adore them.
