It’s unbelievable to think that a couple of years ago I had never heard of AmeriCorps. Fast-forward two years and I am now starting my second term of service in the College and Career Access Program at Hope CommUnity Center. After a fast-paced year of discovery, mistakes, and connection, I concluded my year feeling like I was, in-fact, far from finished; I was not quite ready to leave my students. As I begin a second year of service with Notre Dame Mission Volunteers AmeriCorps (NDMVA), I look forward to helping the inspiring scholars I work with apply to college, find financial aid, and to proudly cheer them on as the group of predominately first-generation students graduate high school and go to college.
Here’s what our volunteers love about Hope CommUnity Center.
