Meet Ryann Wilcoxon, AmeriCorps Volunteer Engagement, currently serving with the Mobile Baykeeper organization, in the Mobile Baykeeper AmeriCorps program.
1. What motivated you to join AmeriCorps? I was motivated to join AmeriCorps because I enjoy helping others in my community and have a passion for protecting our environment.
2. What would you like to get out of this service opportunity? I would like to get to know others in my community better, especially those who are seemingly different from me. Oftentimes, I am pleasantly surprised by how much we all have in common.
3. What will your service focus on for the 2019-20 program year? During this program year, my service will focus on recruiting and retaining volunteers to help do the community work that Mobile Baykeeper is known for.
4. What are your plans after AmeriCorps? I would like to continue to work in the nonprofit sector because of its importance in the world and the fulfillment it brings to me.
Thank you for your service, Ryann!
