Great Stories are written by Guiding Ohio Online AmeriCorps Members about their service.
When I heard of the Guiding Ohio Online program and what AmeriCorps members do for their communities, I knew it was the right step for me to go in. Straight out of grad school, I knew that the road for my career was just starting but in this job climate things seem to move slowly. I wanted to do something that I would enjoy but would also help me build teaching skills. I sat down and immediately filled out my application when I came across the Guiding Ohio Online position. I have always felt joy and enthusiasm when helping others and sharing something that might make their life easier. When I give someone information that truly helps them be more informed and I can see that they are truly grateful it makes everything we do in this program worthwhile.
