For Marietta College, connecting with Relay for life and bringing them to campus has been awesome. Though it is a massive project to tackle, our students are extremely excited for the project. At Warren Local high school, the students are also have success with reaching out to their community resources. They are extremely connected with their foster children organization. Some help from fellow AmeriCorps members may include if they have any more awesome connections regarding cancer awareness or foster children for our students to contact.
Tell us about your successes (or frustrations) in connecting with community resources. How might your fellow AmeriCorps members or HPAC staff help? I felt the training that I received didn’t really get me prepared for what I was to be doing. Honestly this job is something that you need someone to show you the ropes first. But now that I have started in my schools, I can say that I am loving it. The kids are awesome and I am so pumped for what that we are doing. I think that the members and staff are helping in all the ways they can and I truly appreciate what Amanda and Matt have done to help me at the schools that we are at.
