As a person dedicated to advancing my future career in public health through an extensive focus in academic studies, a position with AmeriCorps has allowed self-growth and valuable opportunities.
Coming out of college, in the depth of the great recession, I knew I wanted to do something like Peace Corps.
I've always had a passion for service, and Habitat for Humanity and affordable housing were things I was always interested in.
AmeriCorps has changed my life by giving me the opportunity to be a leader in the community.
After graduating from Howard University where the motto is Truth and Service, I didn't want to chase a corporate dream. I wanted to help other children achieve their dreams.
AmeriCorps changed my life. Through AmeriCorps I was able to earn my high school diploma, gain great life skills and enroll in college.
