I was able to learn skills that both challenged my abilities and became an integral part of my career. MCC shaped my future career choices and taught me how to work with just about anyone.
Currently serving as a Park Ranger with the Maryland Park Service.
I loved never knowing what was coming next, what new skill I would learn, what new challenge I would face, and then overcoming that challenge. In MCC we learned how to tackle any situation, whether it was with help and guidance or on our own, and all life skills that are very important.
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.
