Max Schneck, a proven entrepreneur, has a background in nonprofit organizations and politics.
Max Schneck has been an entrepreneur since he was 14 years old. He founded a nonprofit organization, Reading Reflections, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit. As the board member and founder, he is responsible for guiding the organization’s direction. The nonprofit is an enterprise that builds literary outreach for children, in hospitals, social service programs and community centers. Almost half a billion books have already been donated and ten children’s libraries created.

As a recent college graduate of Dartmouth College (based in Hanover, New Hampshire), Schneck has continued to prove himself in the entrepreneurial arena. He worked as a legal intern for Vincent & Rees before joining DDR & Associates as a private equity analyst intern. These positions, among others, have prepared Schneck to tackle any business venture.

Throughout his work experiences, Schneck has earned a number of certifications, and he has become proficient in document development through Microsoft platforms. Other than working, Max has become interested in traveling, scuba diving, snowboarding and other hobbies.

Reading Reflections, of course, is his main hobby. It takes a dedicated teenager to found a nonprofit that has grown into a major contributor to youth literacy in just eight years.

As an entrepreneur, Schneck has the business development experience equal to someone much more weathered. This hasn’t stopped him, however. He is able to take an idea, generate support, launch it and carry it out with an emphasis on outreach and stability. Today, he enjoys where his variable experiences in business and community work have taken him.
Max Schneck attended the North Shore Hebrew Academy. Graduating in 2009, he was a National Merit Scholar (earning him a sizeable financial reward for education) and published “Lead Levels in Residential Soil and Proximity to a Superhighway” for the American Museum of Natural History. The academy is based in Neck, N.Y., and helped prepare him to enter the collegiate life.

In Hanover, Max attended Dartmouth College. He graduated with a Bachelor of Arts in 2013 with a major in religion and a concentration in philosophy. He was granted honors for a pair of academic citations in science, politics and the economics of energy as well as modern Hebrew. Scoring high on tests and holding a solid GPA, he took on a number of internships throughout his college years that prepared him to enter the business world.

One of his first positions was in the U.S. House of Representatives as a congressional intern for Congresswoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz. As an intern, he was responsible for arranging the congresswoman’s meetings and educating visitors. He led tours of the congressional campus as well. Among other projects, Max Schneck developed and presented briefs on children obesity, health care, education and tax reform in West Virginia. Though the internship was only for a summer, Schneck picked up many skills and learned the importance of networking.

Schneck then became a legal intern for Vincent & Rees LLC. Based in Salt Lake City, he assisted attorneys with a number of general corporate and securities issues. He drafted and revised public offering registration statements, prepared opinion letters and published reports. He was a jack of all trades at Vincent & Rees, an intern who interacted directly with clients and helped attorneys manage cases.

Max Schneck also interned for DDR & Associates in Salt Lake City. As a private equity analyst, he was primarily responsible for analyzing legal and securities data. He prepared reports for investors and managers, coordinated funding programs and looked over financial statements later used by upper-level management.

While these legal, financial and political positions gave him a firm background in business operations and networking, his true passion has been directed at Reading Reflections. As the founder and board member of the nonprofit, he built it out of Metro, New York, and Hanover. The main function of the nonprofit is to build and stock local youth outreach centers with children’s books. To date, more than 400,000 books have been donated.

In addition, Max Schneck helped create more than ten working children’s libraries in youth outreach centers, hospitals and in social service programs. He was even featured in the “Way To Go Applicant” segment on Channel 12 News through Newsday.

He strongly believes that children, especially those in need, deserve access to books. One reason the nonprofit took off was because of Max’s connections to Dartmouth. Through the college, he was able to work side-by-side with the DREAM program, an organization that supplies mentors to children.

The first aim of the organization was to supply used children’s books to a new preschool. The founders of the organization then directed their efforts at campaigning for a school library that lacked educational material. The minds behind Reading Reflections took to the streets and started collecting children’s books for education and entertainment. Due to the success of that original campaign, Max Schneck had to start finding places to take surplus books. Reading Reflections approached a number of hospitals and human services centers, finding other organizations that were proud to bring literacy up a notch.

Reading Reflections found regional recognition for its efforts and eventually opened up to community support. Through local school book drives, publishers and bookstores, the organization’s collection continued to grow. Reading Reflections has become a major force in the nonprofit community. The founders endeavored to create something impactful and lasting. For him, knowing he has made a difference is satisfying enough.
Max Schneck believes that they still has plenty of room to grow. A lack of high-quality educational books for kids is not a regional dilemma — every area could use support, especially when schools and community centers struggle to keep their shelves stocked. Reading Reflections is a prime example of a nonprofit that helps on multiple levels. The effort, of course, was spearheaded by Schneck and his passion for doing what he can for the community.

He looks forward to growing the nonprofit organization, building new libraries in various buildings and collecting more books. It has already picked up regional recognition and is a clear example of one person with an idea and the motivation to carry it through to fruition.

Professionally speaking, Schneck is currently looking for a career where he can utilize his diverse skill set and talents. His background in the legal sector, finance and politics may lead him to such a career. For now, he enjoys working for Reading Reflections and building the nonprofit.

Most likely, Schneck will create his own job through a company he founds. As a self-starter, he has the experience he needs to make this a reality. He proved himself as an entrepreneur more than eight years ago and continues to do so to this day. More than anything, he intends on making a mark in whichever industry he chooses to pursue. Will it be the legal sector? Will he jumpstart a new nonprofit? Max Schneck is ready and willing to make a future in any area that allows him to succeed.
