Sare Campbell wraps up her successful AmeriCorps term with Clark County Green Schools. She served the program from October 2022 to June 2023. Check out this blog post for a recap of her experiences
I am so grateful for the opportunity to have served with the Clark County Green Schools program. Over my AmeriCorps term, I conducted 13 lunchroom observations and eight waste audits, taught 41 educational lessons, wrote 8 blog posts, and sewed fruit and vegetable plushies! I learned so much about solid waste management and all things composting by participating in Clark County's Composter Recyclers class and attending the Solid Waste Association of North American's NW regional conference.
This position revealed to me the many layers of community within Clark County. Being involved in school programs, public education, and many volunteer events, it was amazing to be around so many passionate individuals. It gives me a sense of relief to know there is a community working in many ways toward the shared goal of sustainability.
One of the best parts of being an AmeriCorps member is your passions can align with your job. It is rare and valuable to find this! Thank you to everyone I met along the way and for always being kind and inclusive. I value every conversation and experience I was able to have.
In the future, I see my work involving community, sustainability, and some realm of Earth Science. During my service term, I became a licensed Geologist-in-Training and I have been paired with a mentor through the U.S. Composting Council. I am so excited for the opportunities to come!
Thank you for an awesome experience!
