AmeriCorps VISTA

I began my service year as a NH Catholic Charities VISTA serving at Green Mountain Conservation Group (GMCG). I had been with GMCG for several years prior as a committee member, gardener, water quality monitor, Trout in the Classroom and GET WET volunteer, receiving the Community High Watch Award for dedication and volunteer work protecting the Ossipee Watershed. After six months of service I had the opportunity to work with Families in Transition (F.I.T.) serving at another local non-profit, Global Awareness Local Action (G.A.L.A.).

I had worked partnering with G.A.L.A. on various projects in the past for building a common garden for the food pantry in our town as well as collaborating on Rain Catchment Systems as part of the Sustain-A-Raiser model.

This experience has been very humbling and rewarding. I am grateful to have had this opportunity to serve our communities in this capacity. To learn more about serving in your state go to  the Corporation for National and Community Service ( CNCS).
