"For me, AmeriCorps VISTA was God's way of pointing me in the direction I needed to go. The VISTA position at AIM in the Development Office has lead me to build up my knowledge of nonprofits, build social capital, and prepare for the next steps in my life and career. I am blessed for the opportunity given to me to learn under such great leaders, such as Kristi King-Brock. I greatly recommend AmeriCorps VISTA to anyone looking for a next step in life." --Sarah Ann Skelton, 2018-19 AmeriCorps VISTA at AIM for Volunteer/Development
