VISTA Adam Jones Trains Staff and Manages Volunteers at Resale Store

Adam JonesDuring the month October, AmeriCorps VISTA Adam Jones at Woman to Woman Pregnancy Resource Center, lead groups, facilitated weekly staff training, and help cultivate ownership throughout Twice as Nice Resale. Through these actions, Adam sought to empower staff and volunteers through collective resolve. He did so through the implementation of the program, “How do IACT”, with a policy training seminar and stressing the importance of teamwork and communication. The goal of this training is to invoke a sense of community and duty through the means of discussion. In addition, Adam alongside a fellow VISTA Sarah Crain managed a group of 45 volunteers who contributed about 105 hours of service. The volunteers sorted through bags of donated clothes, worked on improving the appearance of the store for customers and other side-projects given from the staff.
