AmeriCorps Works!

We're proud to host an AmeriCorps member each year at United Way of Washtenaw County, and currently have two AmeriCorps alumni and one current AmeriCorps member on our Mobile Financial Resource Team!

Craig Kissell shares why he's serving:

I chose to serve in the AmeriCorps at United Way of Washtenaw County because I wanted to give back to the community. I have learned a lot since joining the organization, such as volunteer management, tax preparation, and presentation skills. Being on the Mobile Financial Resource Team has helped connect me with many individuals in the community who I would have never connected with otherwise, whether they are clients, partners, or colleagues. The most significant impact I have seen is how members of the community interact with each other. The volunteers that prepare the taxes truly want to help members of the community, and the clients are overwhelmingly thankful for the service that they are being provided.

I’m happy to be a part of the Volunteer Income Tax Assistance Program, and assisting in bringing these community members together.

Thanks Craig! #AmeriCorpsWorks!
