AmeriCorps Member Training and Skill Building

Throughout the service year members participate in training and skill building opportunities. AmeriCorps members will play an active role in defining their own training and learning objectives both professionally and personally.

AmeriCorps Member Experience

Here is what AmeriCorps members have to say…

“I’ve learned that cultural competency work is never done. I’ve learned that it is okay to admit that I am not an expert despite the fact that I’m largely the only one bringing back this material to my organization.”

“I’m honing my organization, multitasking and time management skills. I’m learning how to balance responsibility and asking for what I need.”

“I’m learning extensively about cultural competency, dominance and non-dominance, privilege, power, race, hegemony, classism, etc. This has been an absolute crash course. Being put in a “point person” position in the organization to talk about these topics has allowed me to rise to the occasion, make mistakes, learn, and keep trying.”

"Personal research, relationships and communication have taught me more about the power of privilege and the need for accountability.  My service has been deeply personal, and I'm grateful for the opportunity to develop the skills needed to communicate on difficult topics in relation to my own identity."
