Meet Kwan McConico, currently serving as Outreach Coordinator with the YWCA Social Justice Department, a service site of the Building Communities, Bettering Lives AmeriCorps program.
1. What motivated you to join AmeriCorps? I am giving the opportunity to help those who are under-resourced. I am also able to help people from the same areas where I grew up.
2. What would you like to get out of this service opportunity? I would like to obtain the feeling of changing someone’s life for the better.
3. What will your service focus on for the 2019-20 program year? During this program year, my service will focus on helping kids become more aware of the issues within society and creating leaders that navigate that leadership to their peers.
4. What are your plans after AmeriCorps? The sky is the limit!
Thank you for your service, Kwan!
