In My AmeriCorps Expirience, I was asked to be a media contact for
the service teams I served on. i would creat press releaces, and
contact media outlets, I was also a recruiter or "CAPPer" as they
called it. I went to high schools and community groups where youth
were and told them about what awesome things one could do when
taking part in national and community service.
in different organizations, I took part in outreach efforts, did
reception work, and generally alot of public work.
I think that the very nature of community service is being in the
community, in the public eye helping people. Sometimes, it's not a
glamerous thing, but it's a great thing to do and you get a great
feeling from doing it. Not to mention you gain alot of wonderful
