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.

My name is Katherine Le Lacheur. I am a proud alumna of AmeriCorps NCCC classes III and IV, Southeast Region, Charleston, SC.
