I wanted to gain technical trade skills in working for the environment.
Thanks to AmeriCorps, I have started my Associate of Applied Science in Automotive Technology at Montgomery College. My career goal is to become a Master Automotive Technician working for a state or government organization.
Everything! Good people to work with and learn from on how to conserve the environment.
I needed to gain experience in the natural resources field and I wanted to serve others while doing so.
I hope to work in natural resources - wildlife management, forestry, parks, etc.
I loved learning! We received all sorts of training, from chainsaw classes to becoming an emergency first responder to environmental education certifications.
I am passionate about conserving natural environments through education and awareness. Physical work on conservation such as trail maintenance is also very satisfying.
I would like to continue working in parks that strive to bring awareness about conservation and educating the public about the respect we should have toward nature.
I have enjoyed how much I have learned about Maryland ecology as well as park maintenance. The people that I have been able to work with have also been a major highlight!
I wanted to gain experience, knowledge and skills that were different from my level of comfort. I also wanted to improve myself as an environmentally sound citizen but furthermore as an educator.
I enjoyed being able to learn an array of skill sets in such a short amount of time. I also enjoyed meeting so many young people with such different backgrounds than my own.
I grew up in the Maryland State Parks because my father was a Park Ranger. I joined MCC as an opportunity to give back to the parks, since the parks gave so much to me while growing up.
Being productive and being happy.
I have enjoyed meeting the great people who work for MCC and I must say it is quite enjoyable to work in the most beautiful places in Maryland.
