Graduation and Beyond!

21 Nov

Round 4 certainly was a whirlwind! We started out separated, and even after our reunion, we were still not all together. Maddy was off on her wild fire composite and Ellen got called on disaster in Pennsylvania with a composite team. Meanwhile, the rest of the team headed to Baltimore to represent Raven 1 and AmeriCorps NCCC with our round 4 scheduled sponsor, The Loading Dock.

Raven One worked hard to organized the overstock warehouse and help The Loading Dock better display their wares. It was physically demanding work, and at times it was tedious, but Raven One powered through and helped get a heck of a lot done. The team enjoyed their stay in Baltimore as well.

Before we knew it, we were all back at the point with the entire Corps closing out the year. It was a trying and emotional year, and saying goodbye was not easy. We are all proud to have graduated from Class XVII and we are looking forward to our next steps, be it going back to school or searching for a job.

If you have come to this site to learn more about AmeriCorps NCCC, I hope this site gives you some insight into life on a team. Please keep in mind that everyone has a unique experience in this program, and you will meet people who are very different from you and who are not so different after all. This program offers a lot of opportunities, and it will push you in ways you can’t even imagine until you are there wearing the shirt and the pants and boots riding in a 15 passenger government van. I honestly believe that no matter your experience, this program will definitely surprise you with what you can accomplish, overcome and withstand. To apply, visit http://www.americorps.gov.
