Integrating Into Lansing–The VISTAs First Week

June 14th marked the first week that the AmeriCorps VISTAs, Clara Martinez and Brittany Gordon, started their work on Lansing City Hall Campus. They set out to help incorporate the Love Your Block blueprint–provided by Cities of Service–into the neighborhoods within Lansing and illuminate the importance of impact volunteering.

However, it being week one, the VISTAs first had to learn about the many opportunities and “bright spots” within Lansing in order to fully understand what makes this city so amazing. From going to the offices of their Michigan senators and representatives to seeing the beauty of Hawk Island Park, they learned the beautiful details of the Capital City.

They look forward to delving into their work with neighborhood and resource development. Below are some pictures they took of their adventures in week one.
