Who am I?

My name is Katelyn McCoy, and I’m a recent (2016) graduate of Louisiana State University in Baton Rouge, Louisiana. For the next year, I’ll be traveling to different parts of the Western United States with the AmeriCorps NCCC. My service commitment is 10 months long, and throughout those ten months, I’ll be documenting as many exciting things as I can about the projects we complete, the people we meet, and the sites we see. Come along for the ride!

What is AmeriCorps NCCC?

AmeriCorps NCCC (National Civilian Community Corps) is a full-time, team-based residential program for men and women age 18-24. The goal of the NCCC is to strengthen communities and develop leaders through direct, team-based national and community service. In partnership with non-profits—secular and faith based—local municipalities, state governments, federal government, national and state parks, Indian tribes, and schools, members complete service projects throughout the region they are assigned.

Members are assigned to one of five campuses across the USA- in Colorado, California, Maryland, Mississippi, and Iowa. I will be stationed in Sacramento, California.

All of this information came directly from the AmeriCorps NCCC webpage. If you’d like to see more, you can go here.
