Currently Serving AmeriCorps VISTAs

These AmeriCorps VISTAs are a valued part of our team:

Keondralayer Estell, Reading Program Developer, Red Door Urban Missions


I serve with the AmeriCorps program because I am on a mission to reach the youth. I will create a lasting impression on those who have come to know me as a person but most importantly as an educational leader. I want to reach the families and children in the community to show them that I believe in them and their future because they can be anything they dream of in this life as long as they apply themselves. When I look back on my VISTA  journey, I want to say my farewells knowing that I was invested in my craft enough to have done everything I could for the families and children I met along the way. If I were thinking about my future self later on in life, looking back on my life I want the families and children to remember me most as the educational leader that was dedicated, committed, patient, loving, trustworthy, responsible, respectful, fair, and caring.

Tell me and I forget. Teach me and I remember.

Involve me and I learn.
