This month we're talking to members about what they're doing with their time while waiting to begin serving with AmeriCorps NCCC and FEMA Corps. Jacklyn will arrive at the Pacific Region this October to serve as a corps member with NCCC.

USF this past spring
Hey everyone! My name is Jacklyn. I was born and raised in central Florida and I was selected to serve in AmeriCorps NCCC with the Pacific Region in Sacramento, California. I will be traveling across the country in order to gain the experience of a lifetime. I recently graduated from the University of South Florida with my bachelor of arts in anthropology.
So what exactly am I going to do while I am waiting to serve America? I plan on spending a lot of quality time with my family and friends, doing things like playing darts and cornhole with my parents, or going to the beach, movies, or theme parks with my friends. I am also going on a week-long cruise right before I leave for AmeriCorps NCCC. I want to have many adventures while I still can, discovering the world, creating new experiences, and making memories for a lifetime.

I am so honored and excited to have the opportunity to be a part of AmeriCorps NCCC. I cannot wait to have the experience of helping those in need while making new memories, friends, and experiences along the way. I love that I am going to have the chance to travel our country and make connections with organizations that are doing such great things for it. See you soon sunny California and fellow corps members!
