Alumni story
Debra Thompson Chicago

By making me more involved in my community, I now understand that change comes one person at a time. Because of my AmeriCorps experience, I’ve gotten my family involved in volunteering. My daughter volunteers at her college, which has given her more compassion for her peers and understanding of others. 

I now work at a job that is community-based and helps improve the quality of life for all humanity. Thanks VISTA for the chance to be the best me that I could be.
