Over the past three years, W3 has been grateful for the help of two AmeriCorps*VISTA members, Charlotte Ericksen and Marci Pasquesi. AmeriCorps is a national service program that provides opportunities for volunteers to serve universities, community organizations, and school districts. Charlotte and Marci did great work to make W3 a more impactful and sustainable coalition. Their service is greatly appreciated.
