Member Spotlight: Brandy McKinney, STEM Program Assistant


Brandy is on the left.

Meet Brandy McKinney, she serves with the Building Communities, Bettering Lives AmeriCorps program with partnering agency Girls Inc.

What motivated you to join AmeriCorps? I was looking for a way to change the direction of my career and help myself become a better person in the process. I’ve always been a steward in my community but AmeriCorps helped me see what other opportunities are available in non-profit.

What would you like to get out of this service opportunity? I would like to make connections with people who are like minded in community service.

What will your service focus on for the 2017-18 program year? Encouraging middle and high school aged girls to partake in STEM education or STEM careers.

What are your plans after AmeriCorps? I’m not sure yet, I might do another year or continue my education in engineering.

Thank you for your service Brandy!
