RAPP Leaders Go On To Be... AmeriCorps Volunteers!

A couple of years back, we made a couple videos called "RAPPers Go On To Be..." to highlight how involvement in RAPP makes sense for all Bearcats regardless what career you might be headed toward.

In reflecting on encouraging people to apply for formal leadership positions in RAPP, we thought it could be similarly useful to highlight how people have contributed to RAPP and gone on to apply the knowledge they learned in a variety of impactful professions.

Many RAPPers go on to serve in AmeriCorps, a program of the US federal government that engages adults in intensive community service work (including Public Allies).  Here are two recent RAPP leaders who served:

Maika (left) with Steve at the RAPP XXIII Banquet
Maika Arnold (RAPP XXII) was a Peer Leader and Student Worker for RAPP XXIII.  2009-2010, Maika served in AmeriCorps with HomePort in Columbus, OH.

Kevin (right) receives his 2012-13 Social Justice League certificate from Jojo.
Kevin Weber (RAPP XXVI) was a Process Observer with Accelerating Racial Justice 2013. He is currently serving with AmeriCorps National Civilian Community Corps.
