UPDATE: Our Event with SIT Graduate Institute, originally planned for April 17th, has been rescheduled for May 8th.
Join us on Wednesday April 17 for an exclusive event for AmeriCorps alumni and current members. SIT Graduate Institute will be presenting information on its internationally-focused master’s degree programs and the scholarship opportunities available to AmeriCorps alumni through this partnership. This event will be a great opportunity to network with other AmeriCorps alumni, learn more about graduate study and the different career paths and leadership roles that SIT prepares its alumni to succeed in.
Whitney Longnecker, a current student in SIT’s MA in International Education shares, “I served as an AmeriCorps*VISTA from 2009 to 2010 for Iowa Campus Compact at AIB College of Business in Des Moines, Iowa. In my position, I assisted students as they completed a service learning requirement, planned an all-campus service day, and implemented a pre-service reflection session. My SIT graduate degree is preparing me for a career in international education where I plan to work on a university campus with study abroad or international students.”
