Meet Maggie! She is an AmeriCorps member serving at both United Way of Southeast Alaska and the CHOICE Program at JDHS.
For United Way she helped organized run the five annual Day of Caring Events in four of our communities (Juneau, Petersburg, Sitka, and Ketchikan). She also spear-headed our community indicators research project which gathers critical information about the condition of our communities in regards to our three focus areas of health, education, and economic stability. During the COVID-19 pandemic she has put together the resource pages to connect community members with needed resources and local guidance.
At CHOICE, Maggie serves as the Academic and Social-Emotional assistant. The CHOICE program helps students who are at risk of not graduating get additional help and services. She works with algebra students one-on-one, giving them individualized help. She also facilitates social-emotional wellness check-ins weekly which is critical for students' well-being.
Thanks, Maggie for all that you do!
