Member Spotlight: Emily Welch, Impact America AmeriCorps Program



Meet Emily Welch, AmeriCorps Team Member, currently serving with Impact America, a partnering agency of the State & National AmeriCorps program.

1. What motivated you to join AmeriCorps?

I was motivated to join AmeriCorps because I wanted to gain real-life

experience before beginning graduate school. I wanted to participate in a year of meaningful service and learn more about my community.

2. What would you like to get out of this service opportunity?

I want to gain the skills and confidence necessary to communicate with leaders and community members in the areas we serve. Additionally, I want to learn more about how nonprofits operate and serve their communities.

3. What will your service focus on for the 2021-2022 program year?

During this program year, my service will focus on serving my communities to address the consequences of poverty through the lens of health. I will do this by providing vision screenings to children at early childcare centers and Pre-Kindergarten classrooms in the state of

Alabama.

4. What are your plans after AmeriCorps?

After AmeriCorps, I will continue pursuing my Master of Public Health

Graduate Program. Upon completion, I hope to obtain a job as an epidemiologist where I will focus on identifying and quantifying health concerns within my communities.


Thank you for your service Emily!
