I joined AmeriCorps because I wanted to make a difference and help save lives by increasing the number of trained community members equipped with Narcan. I also wanted to learn more about the Opioid epidemic and serve the community in a meaningful way.

I believe for me the best part about serving as an Americorp member has been the people I’ve met during my service so far. My Americorps term has allowed me to interact with community members and give back in a way that I didn’t think was possible!

I joined AmeriCorps because I had heard a lot about the opioid epidemic and I wanted to learn more about it through first hand experiences and be a part of the solution. Also, being a Michigander my entire life, I wanted to give back to the communities that have harbored many of my lovely childhood memories.

The ACT Program has allowed me to explore my interests and work with others to raise awareness about opioid use disorder, Narcan, and harm reduction strategies.

My favorite part of being an Americorps member is connecting with people and community groups all over metro Detroit. There’s so much support for the ACT program from the surrounding communities, and it’s an honor to be a part of it.

I decided to join Americorps because I wanted to feel more connected with the community and participate in something that I knew would not only educate and empower not others but myself included. I hope to continue to do just that through ACT and raise awareness about opioid use disorder and harm reduction strategies.
