  • Alumni story
    Marisa Thomas 2012 2012 Tallahassee

    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!
