Alex has been serving at Wasatch since the end of April where she is involved with individual and group therapy, working with children, adolescents and adults with challenging mental health issues.

AmeriCorps , also known as the Domestic Peace Corps, engages thousands of Americans nationwide in intensive, results-driven service in areas of education, public safety, health, and the environment. AmeriCorps members serve for up to a year and receive a modest living allowance, training, and an education scholarship to pay for college or pay back student loans.
In the days, weeks, and months following the tragedy of September 11, 2001, Americans joined together to lift each other up, help our neighbors heal, and make our country stronger. Because of that outpouring of generosity and the leadership of the 9/11 families, September 11th National Day of Service and Remembrance has become an American tradition.

Each year we pay tribute to those we lost by recapturing our patriotic duty to serve others through volunteering and service.
