I am an AmeriCorps VISTA serving at Youth Services System. Having the opportunity to serve at this organization and in this community has changed my life. I have learned that no effort goes unnoticed in the face of making a change and I am so humbled to be a part of that chain.

I am an AmeriCorps VISTA for Youth Services System, as well as a senior at Wheeling University. Serving at YSS has taught me how to expand my perspectives and find deeper ways to spark action in the community. I have been able to create awareness through art and creativity to relate to community members on a more personal level.
