2017–18 AmeriCorps Team
2017–18 AmeriCorps Service Members
During the 2017–18 school year (the third year of the grant), four AmeriCorps members served with the Grinnell AmeriCorps Partnership. These AmeriCorps members focused on health and wellness to ensure kids are prepared to learn (healthy readers taskforce coordinator) and helped support after-school literacy efforts (after-school enrichment aides).
Pictured below are the AmeriCorps members who served during this academic year. Kyle Cogley (at the table with the puzzle) and Claire Sponheim (at the table with hand tools) served at the Grinnell Community Daycare and Preschool providing direct service to support after-school literacy efforts in Grinnell.
Carolyn Bittner served at the Grinnell Area Arts Center, also providing direct service to support after-school literacy efforts.
Sara Brown served at Imagine Grinnell and debuted the Recipe-in-a-Bag program at the Community Meal.
