“Average Day” and “AmeriCorps” Don’t Really Go Together

We AmeriCorps in the office are preparing for our statewide Member Celebration next week, and we needed a way to show other AmeriCorps members from around Michigan what it is we do here at the American Red Cross of Greater Grand Rapids.

So I decided to chronicle in photos what an AmeriCorps member here might do in an “average” day.  Here are some of the pictures we took.  Thanks to Ben for being the Average AmeriCorps Guy!

A Day in the Life 001

Ben the Average AmeriCorps Guy sits down to check his morning email. It seems it will be an uneventful day.

Returning to the office, the Average AmeriCorps Guy meets with fellow AmeriCorps to discuss community partnerships.
