Everybody Wins! USA welcomed 10 of its 2008-2009 AmeriCorps members to Boston on November 13-14, including Kate Tedford (Connecticut), Nora Tarr and Jordan Baeker (Boston), Stacy Wood (Los Angeles), Rasheida McCall (New York), Julie Krouse (Vermont), Adam Fanning (Iowa), Sarah Diamond and Margaret Daly (Washington, DC), and Kate Porigow (Pittsburgh). Now in year two of a three-year grant from AmeriCorps, our AmeriCorps members will help us recruit, train and serve an additional 2,000 children over the next year.
Our orientation included discussions with EW! founder Arthur Tannenbaum, AmeriCorps Program Officer Martha Tierney and EW! AmeriCorps alumni Ryan Ruffing (Boston), Elizabeth Clare (DC) and Nancy Sherman (CT), all of whom are now working full time for Everybody Wins! affiliates. We also visited the Everybody Wins! Metro Boston (EWMB) offices and had a roundtable discussion with Hollister Inc. Marketing Manager Meaghan Toland and CEO Kip Hollister (who is also an EWMB Trustee) See our group photo below. We have a great group of AmeriCorps members and we greatly appreciate them dedicating a year of service to Everybody Wins!
