Nate Marner is joining AmeriCorps this year.
Marner, a University of Iowa Junior, is a poli-sci major and has lived in Iowa City his whole life.
Marner became interested in AmeriCorps a year ago and felt that it was his duty to give something back to his country.
An interesting online conversation about AmeriCrop can be found here.
Marner wants to work for the United States government; specifically the EPA.
While a full-time student, Marner also works part-time at the University Bookstore’s Tech. Connections department. He has been working at Tech. Connections for almost two years. He enjoys the job, because it deals with computers and other electronics; a few items he is personally interested in.
During his free time, Marner enjoys playing video games and watching television online. He also will research any topic out of sheer boredom on Wikipedia.
*Note: I selected the links for the reason that they are the best sites that can give a great look at what AmeriCorps is about and what AmeriCorps alumni have done in the program over the years. The AmeriCorps website itself is a government-run website for the program and the blog was recommended by the actual AmeriCorps Web site itself. The online conversation link is the discussion forum for the Portland, Maine chapter.
