My Americorps Experience
Late in the fall of 2017, I did something crazy and wonderful: I took a volunteer position at The Greenhouse Project as an Americorps worker. For nearly a year I went to work everyday in jeans and a t-shirt and boots rather than suits and heels. I dug in the dirt and planted seeds instead of going to Meetings. I pulled weeds and harvested vegetables to give to local Carson City agencies such as FISH, Ron Woods, Meals on Wheels and more.
Today I can honestly say it was the best crazy thing I’ve ever done. I’m happier, healthier and best of all, I’m now working for the Project and loving every minute of it. Maybe you should do something crazy! Check out our Americorps job openings for next year.
