I had the most unforgettable experience working with this program. I got to connect and listen to the stories of so many people during an isolating year. I got to work with a team that worked tirelessly to create the best experience for their volunteers. The Experience Corps Sacramento program does impactful work that makes a difference in its volunteers and students. It was a pleasure working with this team and learning from them. I highly recommend this program because you get to wear different hats, experience the difference you make, and work with a team dedicated to helping their community.
