Team AmeriCorps: Why I Serve by Erika Stover

March 7, 2019

A favorite part of my service experience is getting to meet many different residents, who all have so many stories to tell and experiences to share. I never know what to expect to hear throughout my day. It can range from talking about current eventsĀ to reminiscing about old cars and anything in between.

The favorite part of my service experience is being able to take part in art activities during programs. Art is my favorite form of expression and I get to savor it in so many ways through this position, from designing event flyers to creating mixed media art with participants. Art reflects a piece of ourselves that exists in that moment, so I feel more connected to the older adults I serve, especially those with memory loss, through their creations.
