I've been on the V Cafe for months and was not aware that this forum existed, haha! So let me introduce myself: my name is Tara Glynn, I served two terms, one as a VISTA and one as a VISTA Leader, in Tallahassee, FL, with the Florida Campus Compact AmeriCorps*VISTA Initiative from 2007-2009. In 2009 I moved to Nassau County, Long Island, NY to attend law school. However I've found it quite difficult to find alumni in the area, which is surprising to me because I figured, what with being so close to NYC, I would find plenty. I have tried AmeriCorps*Alums, and they have had a few events. However they've all been in NYC and all cost money to attend, which as an AmeriCorps*Alum and law student, I simply cannot afford.
So I'm just looking for AmeriCorps in the area, alum or not actually. Just people to connect with, network with, and try and create a new home for myself here. If anyone here is in the area, or if anyone has some advice on how to find and network with alums in the area, I would really appreciate it. :-)
