Refelctions on AmeriCorps Service - Nevada Outdoor School

Hi my name is Matt, or as my little campers call me Dinomatt.

My time serving for AmeriCorps has been one fun ride. On the first day of being an AmeriCorps member I started at Nevada Outdoor School. I was not sure what I was getting myself into, but in the back of my head something was telling me just go for it. A month went by and I was learning so much stuff already. I was learning how to become a leader. With the help of my other AmeriCorps members it was getting easier. A couple of months went by and I was having a blast! I was teaching classroom lessons, helping out with the BLM and Nevada Department of Wildlife, leading camping trips, and more! I was growing, meeting new people, and, best of all, I was learning things. Like teaching, leadership skills, planning events, etc. 

One of the things I like about AmeriCorps is how much we are involved in the community. At first I was super shy and quiet. Now I have learned to open up and become an outgoing person. 

I’m glad I signed up to be an AmeriCorps member!
