Intern for the Office of Mayor Hardie Davis, Jr.

“The AmeriCorps VISTA program was very flexible with on-site work placements and ensured that the site I was placed at fit my experience, skills, and personal values. The flexibility of being allowed to choose the length of your work term commitment was also a great benefit that came with the position. I loved the VISTA program because, as an extension of AmeriCorps's core mission, it is centered around service and devotion to improving a community on all levels, which aligns perfectly with who I am. In my specific placement with the Mayor's Office in the Augusta Richmond County Municipal Government, I had an abundance of opportunities to develop new professional skills and network with prominent connections. ”
