1. What will your service focus on this year?
During this program year, my service will focus on providing direct support to economically disadvantaged children.

I will be demonstrating useful math development skills that will have a set of specific and measurable indicators.

I was inspired to serve because I want to support the teachers in our school system, and I love working with kids and helping them learn and grow.
3. What advice would you give someone interested in serving with your AmeriCorps State program.?
I would tell them to go for it! AmeriCorps is a great way to give back to your community and to help others.
Thank you for your service Amanda!
