"...everyone I served with became family!"

Bobbi J. Minard | AmeriCorps Member 2017

I began serving at Green Iowa for one summer, for an internship credit during my junior year at UNI. It connected me to Waterloo and Cedar Falls, and everyone I served with became family! Not just the other AmeriCorps members, but my supervisors and the staff who watched over the program. Everyone I served with years ago still keeps in contact, and when I started looking for work after I graduated, my supervisors actively kept me in mind when they went to networking events. It was because of them I heard about my current job! I now manage an AmeriCorps program at Iowa State, and my boss continually thanks Carmen for running into her at a conference and passing on my information.
