AmeriCorps and VISTA Service Members

BBBS enjoys a strong partnership with the Corporate for National and Community Service (CNCS). BBBS hosts both AmeriCorps through the City of Davenport grant and VISTA service members through Western Illinois University in Macomb. 

The following AmeriCorps and VISTA Service members have completed at least their BA degrees in social service, education, or counseling (many Masters and other Advanced Degrees) and are providing BBBS and our community with the generous donation of their time and talents.  All members have completed program certification through Big Brothers Big Sisters of America and are supervised by the tenured BBBSMV employee. 

All serve for a nominal living allocation and education award after completing one year of service.  We couldn't serve our communities without them!  Thank you!
