    Native communities are the forgotten lands of America.  It was an honor to serve the Tribes of Southern California for two years.  I was tasked with solving the problem of feeding the youth at championships for our sports leagues.  The curent protocol was to hire out a fast food truck which provided burgers and fries.  Seeing this as problematic, we brainstormed and used trial and error over the course of the next year.  The end result was Rez Dogg's Refreshments, a program that gained over $125,000 in support to continue health efforts for SoCal Native youth.  I am very grateful for the opportunity.

    I do have to mention that I am an AmeriCorps State/National Alumni. I realize that this site may only apply to VISTA Alums, however I did not want to miss out on sharing a snapshot of my experience. I served with Rebuilding Together, Inc. a nationwide nonprofit organization with a mission of "Bringing volunteers and communities together to improve the homes and lives of low-income homeowners." I served at the Gainesville, Florida affiliate. My titles were AmeriCorps State/National CapacityCorps Member, Volunteer/Project Site Coordinator for Rebuilding Together North Central Florida 2012-2014 (now that's a mouthful!). I served for 2 years, repairing and rebuilding homes for homeowners that could not afford the much-needed critical home repair that was endangering the lives of them and their families. When I completed my AmeriCorps terms, I continued to serve the organization as a permanent staff member until I relocated. I am currently serving as an AmeriCorps VISTA in Pennsylvania.

    Thanks for looking! Photography by me, Tina L Hayes. Enjoy! If I am not able to upload more than one picture, I'll try to upload more in another post if I am allowed.

    After learning about AmeriCorps in 2011 and completing two terms of service through State/National, I had the opportunity to become a Summer VISTA through Florida State University's Youth Programs at the Center for Leadership and Social Change. My Summer VISTA experience included coordinating speakers and community outreach presentations for a neighborhood summer youth program. The skills, knowledge and hindsight that I learned as a team member has been very influential in how I communicate with others on a professional and personal basis. An unforgettable highlight was when I was invited to attend the White House briefing for AmeriCorps Alums at the close of my Summer VISTA term. I highly recommend to individuals who are seeking to learn more about Americorps and/or able to only fulfill a short service term to apply for a nearby Summer VISTA position!

    I became involved with the AmeriCorps VISTA program after completing a service learning internship for my final semester of college. My internship allowed me to work alongside and assist an AmeriCorps VISTA member with tutoring programs and curriculum for refugees. After graduating and loving the work I did, this VISTA encouraged me to apply to AmeriCorps. Four months later, I started my first VISTA term as the Calendar Program Coordinator at HandsOn Greater Phoenix. My role was to recruit and train Volunteer Leaders committed to leading community service projects at other nonprofits. After my term was up with HandsOn, I enjoyed a relaxing weekend before starting my second AmeriCorps term that very next Monday. My second, and current host site, is StreetLightUSA where I am the current Educational Enhancement Developer. My role involves developing policies to expand StreetLight's mentoring program. As their first VISTA, I am learning as I go about the current program and working on relationship building and eventually hosting mentor trainings.
