What a great year. It has been a rough road, but through it all, I know that I made a difference. Joining AmeriCorps has been a great experience not just with serving, but with really touching the community. I have had the pleasure to serve people of all ages and really make a difference in people’s lives. It has become a lot more to me than just collecting blood, but about serving people in need and making sure that others understand that need. If I could do it all over again I would. In fact, I am doing it all over again, committing to another year of service through AmeriCorps and the American Red Cross. AmeriCorps has really helped me realize what I am passionate about, and will only help me continue to fulfill my goals in life.
We are now accepting applications for the 2010-2011 AmeriCorps service year. Click here to learn more.
