MEMBER SPOTLIGHTS & STORIES

“When I found out about AmeriCorps, I realized how perfect this organization could be for me. I could have easily been someone in the CIS program as a kid, so it resonated with me on a personal level. I serve as an AmeriCorps member because it is a life-changing organization, not only for the students, but for me as well.”
