AmeriCorps made it possible for me to pursue my passion: environmental conservation. It provided me with the hands-on experience that I needed to advance in the field.

Barry greets people, makes coffee, and is there for any veteran who needs someone to listen and care. He has the kindest heart and service is his calling.

It is a great opportunity to be able to help meet the needs of my fellow Veterans and take on the challenge of the AmeriCorps pledge to ‘get things done for America.

Joseph finds special meaning and value in serving impoverished youth because he grew up under similar conditions, and he views his AmeriCorps service as an opportunity to honor the dedication and sacrifice of 16 Marines from his unit that didn’t make it.

His experience with AmeriCorps reminded Kevin to “redefine what it means to be ‘successful.’ You cannot dwell on what you cannot change, but you can use your ‘failures’ as motivation to drive towards your own definition of success.”
