Member Spotlight: Francois-Oliver Alexander Barreau


Meet Francois-Oliver Alexander Barreau, he serves with Birmingham Engaging in STEM AmeriCorps-BETA.

What motivated you to join AmeriCorps? I joined AmeriCorps because I saw an opportunity to help others in the community, while at the same time cultivating my skills for the future. I get to work on both my future and the future of others.

What would you like to get out of this service opportunity? I will consider this service opportunity successful if I make an impact in at least one child's life. It does not have to be a monumental impact, just something positive that the kids I work with can hopefully take away from me.

What will your service focus on for the 2017-18 program year? My service for the 2017-18 year will focus on growth. Not just academically for the students I work with but also emotional and psychological growth.

What are your plans after AmeriCorps? After AmeriCorps, I plan on attending law school and hope to become a fairly successful entertainment lawyer.

*Oliver Barreau is currently fulfilling his AmeriCorps service at Glen Iris Elementary School

Thank you for your service Oliver!
