“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!
Ben the Average AmeriCorps Guy sits down to check his morning email. It seems it will be an uneventful day.
Ben then makes a trip to a local elementary school to teach about fire safety. He brings along his trusty sidekick, Freddie the Fire Truck.
Returning to the office, the Average AmeriCorps Guy meets with fellow AmeriCorps to discuss community partnerships.
During his lunch break, Ben the Average AmeriCorps Guy helps to build the recycled bottle Christmas Tree.
Ben and Kirsten (the Average AmeriCorps Girl) lead a volunteer orientation.
(Afterward, they have a marker war.)
The American Red Cross receives a fire call.
Ben the Average AmeriCorps Guy goes to provide assistance in the way of shelter and comfort items.
All in a day’s work…
