Every Wednesday at 10:30 a.m. I attend an AmeriCorps meeting at CSUMB. The purpose of the meeting is to share our successes, and our challenges of the past week and what is coming up for the future.
We get updates on the AmeriCorps requirements, and we take turns training each other.
I’m the oldest in the group, as I’ve said before, and some of what I’m being “trained” to do seems a bit mundane. I’ve been around a long time, and, while I know there’s always something to learn at every age, much of what we talk about I’ve heard somewhere else in my former years.
But, none the less, there are new ideas and new ways to look at the same challenge. So, I’m part of the group, and continue to take part in all of it with my heart and mind. It’s a good group of dedicated young people, energetic and hard working.
