MTCC Awarded AmeriCorps Funding
MTCC's AmeriCorps proposal, which supports post-secondary educational attainment for high schoolers and incoming college students, was recently awarded competitive funding! If you'd like to learn more about this innovative program, and hosting an AmeriCorps team, please contact Dannette Fadness.
According to AmeriCorps, "A growing body of research shows that service has an effect on more than just the communities served, but also on the members themselves. AmeriCorps alumni credit their year of service for developing leadership skills that bridges divides, solves problems, and opens doors to opportunities that advance their careers and education. In addition, research shows that alumni gain skills and are exposed to experiences that communities and employers find valuable."
Thank You, Kathy!
Kathy Peters, MTCC's Office Manager and Program Coordinator for the past three+ years, recently took a new position and will end her tenure with the network office. During her time with Campus Compact she led and supported a growing set of student scholarships, awards and initiatives; produced beautiful reports and publications; and kept the office moving in a positive forward direction. Kathy made enormous contributions during her time with Campus Compact, not least of which was getting Pete Buchanan (our new Operations and Finance Manager) trained and set up for success. We appreciate and thank you, Kathy!
