The team at 826 Boston has been growing!
We’ve really been enjoying welcoming new service members to the 826 Boston team this summer as they prepare to empower the voices of Boston students.
“We are thrilled to welcome 21 AmeriCorps members to a year of service through both VISTA and AmeriCorps state programming,” said Catherine Gomez, Impact and Operations Manager at 826 Boston. “We have such an awesome group that brings a wide range of experiences and expertise. I can’t wait to see what impact everyone will have this year!”
Over the past month, new and returning service members have been alternating between in-person and virtual onboarding sessions to prepare for the upcoming school year. They came to 826 Boston for a variety of reasons, but they are all excited to spend the next year serving the local community.
“I want every student to have a safe place to learn and to explore their minds,” said Skyler Robinson, one of the new High School Program Specialists. “I truly believe 826 Boston is how that goal gets done.”
