Over the course of the service term, members participate in a variety of activities in addition to their Host-Site Service, including Pre-Service Orientation, Training, Member Meetings, Local Service Projects, Member Committees, Administrative Responsibilities, Volunteer Recruitment, a mid-year Retreat, and an end of year Recognition Ceremony.
While my host site has its own resources and its own staff, it is the collaboration and coming together with other similar entities that can truly bring about genuine and holistic success for our clients and the community as a whole.

My family gathered our sleeping bags and set up in a classroom filled with others also looking to wait out the storm."
"Like everything else you will do in life, you will experience “I wish I would’ve known this” moments throughout your service term. The 2018-2019 Corps is here to help you eliminate some of those moments."
"From organized soccer and basketball to independent rock climbing and hiking, being active has been a way for me to gain confidence, stay healthy, and become a part of groups who pushed me to be better. "
