Interfaith Outreach & Community Partners

CTEP AmeriCorps Member and Employment Training Assistant

As an AmeriCorps CTEP Member and Interfaith Outreach & Community Partners I am a part of the Employment Services Team. Along with another CTEP AmeriCorps Member, I manage the onsite computer lab, as well as the Mobile Computer Lab. We help people learn new technology skills and help with people with the job application process. I develop and implement new computer curriculum based on client need and interest. As well, I manage and recruit volunteers to help assist both on-site at the computer lab, as well as off-site at the Mobile Lab. I work with a diverse group of people and every day presents a new challenge and opportunity. Through this year of service I have confirmed my passion for social justice and economic equity.

Career

University of Wisconsin-Madison

Bachelor of Arts, Political Science; Latin American Studies

In my first semester of my undergraduate career I decided to participate in a First Year Interest Group that focused on Contemporary Brazilian Society. This experience laid the ground work in discovering my love for Brazil, the Portuguese language, and the power of politics. I studied Portuguese all four years of university and studied abroad for six months in Brazil.
