Our Volunteer Maryland Coordinators have now been in service for one month – and what a month it has been! Pre-Service Training; time on site to get oriented, draft a work plan for the term of service, and get started with program development; and Superstorm Sandy. What a start!
We’re two weeks away from seeing Class 25 together again for our first In-Service Training and we’re definitely looking forward to it. In the meantime, we’re going to take the next two weeks to share a little bit about each of the Volunteer Maryland Coordinators; think of it as a lengthy Halloween treat.
Class 25 is full of interesting people. Many are recent college graduates entering the nonprofit sector for the first time. Several are AmeriCorps Alums. Two were born in Guyana and a whole lot of them have traveled or studied abroad. We have folks who are new to Maryland and others who have spent their entire lives here. We have parents and soon-to-be parents, adventuresome outdoorsy-types, and one member of a moped gang. We have 17 individuals who have names that begin with a C or a K.
Every single member of Class 25 is taking a bold step for Maryland this year as they work to engage community members in service to others. We’re lucky to have them and excited to introduce them to you. Check out the blog tomorrow and through the next two weeks to learn more about the Volunteer Maryland Coordinators of Class 25 and the service they’ll be doing this year as AmeriCorps members. I think you’ll be impressed.
