GMCG is proud to be partnering with the Lakes Region Conservation Corps as an AmeriCorps host site, currently hosting two full term members and two half term members.

AmeriCorps is a voluntary civil society program supported by the U.S. federal government, foundations, corporations, and other donors engaging adults in public service work with a goal of “helping others and meeting critical needs in the community.” Members commit to full-time or part-time positions offered by a network of nonprofit community organizations and public agencies, to fulfill assignments in the fields of education, public safety, health care, and environmental protection. The program is often seen as a domestic Peace Corps. It employs more than 75,000 Americans in intensive service each year. AmeriCorps is an initiative of the Corporation for National and Community Service (CNCS). It was created under President Bill Clinton by the National and Community Service Trust Act of 1993.

Meet the 2022-2023 GMCG AmeriCorps members!

Grace Kennedy
Grace KennedyAmeriCorps Member Education & Outreach Assistant
Hi y’all! My name is Grace Kennedy and I am from Charleston, West Virginia. I recently graduated from WVU with my bachelors in Multidisciplinary Studies, my focuses were Geology, Geography, and Sociology.

I love doing, seeing, trying things. Hiking, traveling, making art, or trying to boulder any rock I see. I am also a huge nature and people lover so you can find me striking up a random conversation or trying to get outside.
I am excited about environmental/geo science and hope to pursue some kind of environmental protection or education role in my future.

I look forward to being apart of Team Green!

Hailey Williams
Hailey WilliamsAmeriCorps Member Water Quality Resources Assistant
Hello everyone, my name is Hailey Williams! I am from Midlothian, Texas, a small town where I spent most of my time reading, drawing, hiking, camping, and enjoying the environment and wildlife around me. I am a recent graduate from Stephen F. Austin State University in Nacogdoches, Texas, where I received a B.A. in Forestry, with a concentration in Forest Wildlife Management. During my degree, I completed an internship as a field technician on a Bachmann’s Sparrow graduate research project, where I assisted in clarifying the species’ western range and associated habitat preferences.

I look forward to being a part of the LRCC Americorps program and working with the Green Mountain Conservation Group to conduct vital surveys and educational outreach to preserve the aquatic resources of the Ossipee watershed for current and future generations to enjoy.
