AmeriCorps NCCC

I joined AmeriCorps!  I have been assigned to the National Civilian Community Corps (NCCC) North Central Region (in Iowa).  My service will last eleven months starting January 4, 2012.

NCCC North Central Region Campus in Vinton, IA
NCCC trains and deploys teams of full-time service members to respond to pressing community needs around the country.  Teams are involved in disaster relief, infrastructure improvement, environmental stewardship, and urban and rural development.  In a few days I'll begin Team Leader training with about two dozen other people.  Approximately 200 corps members will arrive in February to begin their training, and will be divvied up into their respective teams.

I won't know exactly what I'll be doing until I get to Iowa, but I have one of the more specialized positions working in the office to help administer operations.  Here's to a year of adventure!  Semper paratus.
