Citadel alumnus commits to a Year of Service as an AmeriCorps VISTA
2016 Aug 11
Donald (Donnie) Chestnut started as an AmeriCorps VISTA on Monday, Aug. 8, 2016 in the Krause Center for Leadership & Ethics. AmeriCorps VISTA (Volunteers in Service to America) is a national service program. The one year commitment comes with a modest living allowance (less than minimum wage) and an education award at the end of the service year which can be applied towards undergraduate student loans or further higher education costs. Chestnut will be focusing on two areas in his year with the Krause Center. The two areas include education, particularly with K-12 Title I schools, and veterans through support and volunteer management for various veteran initiatives.
