Meet David, an AmeriCorps Member serving in West Monroe, LA.
Here’s what he had to say about his service: “My name is David Jarrell Payne and I’m a member of AmeriCorps SEE West Monroe, where we #GetThingsDone! I have the opportunity to assist with 1st through 5th grade students who participate in our KidTech After School Program, where fun and learning activities never stop. Serving as a mentor of AmeriCorps I have learned so much, not only from the management team but mostly from the students we serve. They have taught me that helping and assisting others is a rewarding adventure that can never be replaced. Thirty years from now, I’ll still remember the influence and impact these students have had on my life.”
