Featured story

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.

I was an AmeriCorps VISTA with the Maryland Out-of-School Time Network, at Family League of Baltimore. I was a Food Access VISTA member.

In 2015, I was working a part-time retail job that, while paying the bills, was not exactly the most fulfilling work.
