Meet Patricia Henderson, currently serving as Life Skills Education Program Specialist with the AlaQuest Collaborative for Education (ACE), a partnering agency of the Building Communities, Bettering Lives AmeriCorps program.
1. What motivated you to join AmeriCorps? I wanted to serve in my community and learn about community resources.
2. What would you like to get out of this service opportunity? Learning more about the needs of my community, resources available to meet those needs, and become an integral part of assisting with attainment.
3. What will your service focus on for the 2019-20 program year? During this program year, my service will focus on assisting youth with skills to enhance their relationships in a positive way. I will also assist in student’s learning skills to navigate socially and emotionally despite life challenges.
4. What are your plans after AmeriCorps? I want to learn more about how to, and to start a program that provides service to women and girls, specifically mothers and daughters.
Thank you for your service, Patricia!
