United We Serve

    As our days here in Tucson quickly dwindle we are still leaving our mark on the community that we’ve called home for the last two months. On Sunday all of our hard work and planning finally came together in the execution of an amazing Day of Service. The team was up at 7:30 a.m. to load all of the donations we’d collected, along with all of the cleaning and painting supplies in our vehicles. With the help of Sun 1’s team leader Jordan we were able to get everything to the park in one trip and began setting things up around 8:00.

    It’s been a great first week. I’ve had the opportunity to meet our extraordinary staff and to hear directly from some of them in my first of many small listening sessions. I met with the Inspector General and received a number of in-depth briefings – and I’m even starting to find my way around the office.

    Imagine a problem facing a community—unemployment or homelessness, poverty or environmental degradation—and there is a good chance that a group of college students are finding a way to tackle it. At the Corporation for National and Community Service, we honor these students and their universities with the President’s Higher Education Community Service Honor Roll. The Honor Roll is the highest federal recognition a college or university can receive for its commitment to volunteering, service-learning, and civic engagement.

    On my first full day in office, I want to tell you how excited and honored I am to be serving as the CEO of the Corporation for National and Community Service. As someone who came to this country as a teenager, and worked long hours to create a better life for myself and my family, it is a high honor to be able to serve my country in this capacity. I am grateful to President Obama for nominating me, and to the Senate for confirming me.

    America is facing some of the greatest challenges in a generation.  At the same time, promising nonprofit organizations across the country are making heroic efforts to meet overwhelming need and, implement effective and innovative ways to meet these challenges.  But their impact is often hampered by a lack of resources and support to evaluate and improve their programs, and expand them so they can serve more communities of need.

    Yesterday was a busy and exciting day at the Corporation for National and Community Service, as we rolled out the President’s FY 2011 budget request for our agency. After briefing our staff, Acting CEO Nicola Goren and Chief of Program Operations Kristin McSwain hosted calls all afternoon to share the details with our grantees across the country.

    Monday was not an average day on the road for us. We’re in the middle of a long eight game road trip and flew into Washington, D.C. late Sunday night after tough game in Toronto. Fortunately, Monday had a couple opportunities for us that kept the team’s energy high despite the minimal sleep.
