Here’s how AmeriCorps VISTA and Greer Relief have impacted Katie, our current VISTA.
“The best way to find yourself is to lose yourself in the service of others” – Gandhi
In my term of service at Greer Relief, I’ve had the chance to grow on both a personal and a professional level. As the Program Coordinator for the Greer Food Co-op and the RENEW education and enrichment classes, I have had the chance to develop personal connections with individuals I may have never met otherwise. They’ve shared their wisdom and knowledge with me, which has helped me become a more well rounded person and help break the stereotypes of what it’s like to live in the cycle of poverty and try to break out of it. I’ve had the opportunity to gain friendships that I’ll cherish for my lifetime. My year as an AmeriCorps VISTA at Greer Relief has given me the experience needed to pursue a career in community development and education. Want to make a difference in the community and someone else’s life? Join Greer Relief’s team as the AmeriCorps VISTA and put your skills to use to assist Greer Relief with their mission to help break the poverty cycle for families in the Greer community. Don’t have the all the skills you think you need for your future career, Greer Relief is the perfect learning environment. Let others learn from you, as you learn from them as well. “No one can help everyone, but everyone can help someone”
