Coming off of 5 years of prison AmeriCorps was the only interview I sat in that I didn't feel judged. I didn't have much of a resume but I knew deep down inside of me I can and will be an asset to my community.

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.
