What was your motivation for becoming a Serve Louisiana member?

I wanted to give back to the community during my gap year, and Serve Louisiana had a number of really interesting available opportunities.

Tell us about your experience.

With my Serve Louisiana partner, the Baton Rouge Youth Coalition, I’ve not only had the chance to work closely with wonderful young people, but I’m also learning skills that will prepare me for my future teaching career. The partner staff made me feel like part of the team immediately, and my supervisor has provided constant support. I have no doubt that I’m a valued part of the family forever.

What did you gain from being a member?

My service has helped me in so many ways. Throughout the service term, both Serve Louisiana and my partner organization gave me numerous opportunities and connections that will help me in the future.
