AmeriCorps Week Volunteer Spotlight: Alphonse D. Ramsey II
"A major part of the commitment to AmeriCorps is being prepared to get involved in any challenges presented and keeping in line with the AmeriCorps motto “Getting things done.” Sometimes this means getting familiar with concepts very quickly. Most of my experience prior to AmeriCorps was in training and risk management, but a portion of my service brought me into the arena of exercise development and delivery, one I was not familiar with. In order to be effective, I took every Red Cross class offered on exercise design and evaluation. In a short time, the exercise was completed and I accomplished many of the goals that were set. Sometimes getting things done means trying something unfamiliar and being willing to learn."
