Meet Destiny McCarter, currently serving as After School Enrichment Program Specialist with the YWCA After School Enrichment Program (ASEP), a service site of the Building Communities, Bettering Lives AmeriCorps program.
1. What motivated you to join AmeriCorps? I want to make the most of my time while trying to figure out my next major move. I think serving others is a great way to do that.
2. What would you like to get out of this service opportunity? I would like to get life skills and experiences that will stick with me in my future career.
3. What will your service focus on for the 2019-20 program year? During this program year, my service will focus on providing low-income students, who experience homelessness, with tutoring in grades K-8.
4. What are your plans after AmeriCorps? I honestly don’t have any clear plans after AmeriCorps. Hopefully school will be the next step.
Thank you for your service, Destiny!
