Sparking a Love of Lifelong Volunteering with MCHS Community Corps

In this episode of The S-Files, we are exploring the service done by AmeriCorps member Sarah Webb, who served over the last year with Marshfield Clinic Health System (MCHS) AmeriCorps Community Corps and served the previous two years with MCHS Volunteer Wisconsin at the Volunteer Center of Racine as their Youth Volunteer Coordinator. Sarah describes her service connecting students with volunteer opportunities as part of the Youth Volunteer Corps program, both during the school year and as part of the youth volunteer summer camps she has been coordinating over the last few months. She also discusses several trainings she has organized for youth this summer, including CERT disaster training, First Aid, and their initial Junior Citizen Police Academy, for which she drew upon her own prior experience as a police officer to create. Listen to learn about how Sarah dramatically increased student participation in volunteer activities during her service, including her recognition nationally in 2021 at the Youth Volunteer Corps Summit Awards Ceremony with their Catalyst Award for the impact of her service.
