Serving a year as an AmeriCorps VISTA with Earth Force proved to be an extremely rewarding experience for me. So much so that when the opportunity presented its self to serve an additional year I welcomed it. The Earth Force six step service learning process is a great way to engage the youth of a community to address issues they might see every day but don’t feel empowered enough to take action. Unlike more traditional service projects in which students are assigned a task the Earth Force processes gives the students a say in choosing the issue, researching it, and designing the project. In this way they become much more engaged and energized in what they are hoping to accomplish. Earth Force is a Truly Great Non-profit.
