AmeriCorps- University of Florida
July 2012 — July 2013
I worked in a department of student affairs called the Center for Leadership and Service. Here I was a staff advisor for 4 student groups all focused around mentoring. Specifically these groups connect college students with opportunities to be positive role models for elementary, middle and high school kids throughout Gainesville. In this role I was responsible for the budgets of each organization ( ranging from $500-$1500) as well as helping the boards of each org with recruitment and retention of their member through weekly meetings and monthly workshops.
I also oversaw a scholarship program, ran through americorps, that provides various scholarships to students who do anywhere between 300 and 900 hours of volunteering relating to youth development in a years time.
