AmeriCorps Alums is proud to announce the addition of Christy Hicks to its staff.  Christy will be operating as the Associate Director of AmeriCorps Alums, and will be responsible for facilitating chapter development, marketing, and developing sustainable relationships with state volunteer commissions.  Building community capacity has been the consistent service theme of Christy's career.  She has been involved in the National Service movement on a variety of levels, beginning with two years as a member of AmeriCorps Oakland ('94 & '95) and one year as an AmeriCorps VISTA ('96), where she established youth violence prevention and career exploration programs with adolescents.  Hicks also served as a Learn & Serve program coordinator, an AmeriCorps program site supervisor, and a founding member of the Metro Detroit Chapter of AmeriCorps Alums.  Her work in the community resulted in her being selected as the recipient of the ‘Common Ground Award,’ which she received from President Clinton in 1999. Prior to joining AmeriCorps Alums, Hicks was on faculty at Michigan State University, employed as Promotion Director at CBS Radio, Inc, and specialized in event planning at Metrogroup Promotions, Inc.  She is an Alumnae of Oakland University’s Honors College, and the recipient of that institution’s Human Relations Award.  She earned a Master’s Degree in Youth and Community Development from Michigan State University, and is a Certified Professional Facilitator.  We are glad to welcome Christy to our staff and look forward to the positive impact she will make while at AmeriCorps Alums.
