• This age in our lives, 18-26, is when we choose between paths that set the stage for our adult life. I love supporting young people in that decision making process, and helping them navigate the ups and downs that come with the human experience. Civicorps runs as a family style community that is impossible to describe (I’ve tried) but really is something so unique that I just don’t think you can find this secret sauce anywhere else. Because we are open to Corpsmembers leaving and returning, or staying with us through a whole growth process, we really get to see their journeys over time, successes and challenges, barriers met and barriers overcome.

  • I work at Civicorps because of how gratifying it is to see Corpmembers reaching their educational and professional goals. Their success is my reward!

  • I have always believed that my life’s path would have been totally different if it had not been for the Corps. Giving back to the Civicorps community has been a goal of mine for some time and I believe this is a perfect opportunity to do so.
