Snohomish County AmeriCorps Program

What People Are Saying

Being an Americorps member taught me a lot! I learned a lot more about our community that I probably should have known in the first place! I think the most valuable things I learned from being an Americorps member was definitely learning about the resources we have available to us when we're struggling. I will definitely suggest Americorps to anyone in the future! Thank you so much for all the opportunities, patience, and awesome learning experiences!

AmeriCorps provided me with professional growth bar beyond my expectations. In addition to all of the opportunities I had at my host site, there were numerous workshops and training made available to me. I feel much more confident about my employment prospects than I did coming out of school.

I learned more about the real world during my one year of AmeriCorps than I did during 4 years of college. I could not have found a better way to spend my first year out of college. The experience has been exactly what I wanted it to be and more. I learned so much about myself and my ability to positively contribute to the lives of those around me. The program encouraged me to grow as a professional and truly had my best short and long term interests in mind. It is astonishing to look back on 11 months and see how much I have progressed. Thank you!

This opportunity has given me a fantastic opportunity to learn more about my community and introduce me to a great way to give service. I have learned a great deal about myself and what it is like to give service on a national yet local level.

~AmeriCorps Member, 2007-2008

I considered AmeriCorps a huge growth opportunity for me. And that is exactly what I got. I was challenged on so many levels, and have come out stronger, wiser, more connected, and more enthusiastic than ever before. My self-esteem is soaring from the impacts I have made, and from finding my special spot in the sun where I shine. I know AmeriCorps was the perfect place for me.

I learned so many new skills because of AmeriCorps. But the greatest benefit to me goes well beyond my mastery of specific skill sets. Most importantly, I can now say that I be given new challenges and rise to meet them. Who could ask for more than that (on a professional development level)? I also like the fact that the skills I mastered are applicable to so many other jobs, and important to the community. This was a year well spent to advance my career and my life.

I can't explain in words how much I appreciate the support of AmeriCorps staff. They were there for me in all of my personal and professional struggles throughout the year. They have more than accommodated my needs and allowed me to serve the community in the best possible form.
