AmeriCorps Made my Career: Why I dedicate my work to National Service

My AmeriCorps experience has come full circle. In May, I became the manager of the AIDS United AmeriCorps Program. I love my job because I know first-hand how important, challenging, and life-changing this program is. Everyday I’m inspired by the impact made by AmeriCorps Members and the effect the program has on them.

My AmeriCorps Experience as an HIV Tester

I have provided HIV testing and counseling to over 200 people since August at the Free Clinic. One interaction has really stood out so far. It was one of my first clients, and I was still a little nervous and unsure of myself when it came to the counseling. However, when I went out to greet my client, he was visibly more nervous than me. After a few minutes of talking, I found out why he was so anxious; a friend of his had recently contracted HIV. This had made the virus “real” to him; it was no longer a headline in a newspaper or something he read in his biology textbook. It was now something directly impacting someone close to him. He had decided that as scary as it might be, he had to get tested and know his status.

This World AIDS Day, the AIDS United AmeriCorps team in Washington, DC, addressed stigma in fresh, innovative ways. We used multiple channels to engage our community and raise awareness for HIV/AIDS.

World AIDS Day 2014: A Week of AmeriCorps Activities in Atlanta

As a Member on the newest team in the AIDS United AmeriCorps Program, I celebrated World AIDS Day through service! In three days my four team members and I provided nearly 200 HIV tests and gave four school presentations all around Atlanta. Because young people aged 13-25 are disproportionately impacted by HIV/AIDS in Atlanta, we focused our outreach at youth.

Recognizing World AIDS Day in Cleveland

“1 in 5 people with HIV don’t know they have it, get tested, get care.” This was the message communicated by Team Cleveland on World AIDS Day. Clear and concise, the message stood out against our bright yellow shirts and caught the eye of the morning commuters passing by.
