I felt like I was thrown into the fire from the beginning of my stint in AmeriCorps, and now the fire has simmered down a bit. From not knowing anything about how to recruit volunteers, I have become an instant expert.
Well not really an expert, but definitely someone who has learned a lot about how to get people to enjoy working for nothing.
There will be many smaller events to come and I think another two big ones, but it won’t be as hectic as it has been in the first five months of my time in this organization.
I’m half way through my time and out of the fire! I have survived!
