I’m SCA’s AmeriCorps Manager and I also do a lot of work with evaluating and measuring the work that SCA gets done in the field.
I served as an AmeriCorps member with City Year New Hampshire, where I ran after-school programs and tutored and mentored middle school students in rural Somersworth, NH. I’m embarrassed to say that before AmeriCorps I never did service or volunteer work. Luckily, AmeriCorps made me realize that service was a way to expand my world, do new things, and meet fascinating people. What I love most about my job is that “Ah ha!” moment when an SCA member realizes that an internship is actually national service – and that it’s about giving back to the land as much as it’s about getting benefits and experience. I truly believe that the more people who commit to service, the better place our world will be.
