Gratitude Day #2 2011
Americorps. In 2002, as a recent college graduate, I wanted to refocus my career path and decided to spend a year as an AmeriCorps member. Hands down one of THE best decisions of my life. Spent a year developing a family literacy program at Redwood Elementary. Was paid the least amount of money for any job I have ever worked but the perspective and resulting professional contacts have be en priceless. I was reminded of that year of my life today as I drove into an improvised neighborhood where Americorps members were working on a Habitat for Humanity rebuild. Grateful for my AmeriCorps year.
