It’s my first report on my VISTA Leader experience at AS220. A lot has happened since August 2011!
I was given a tour of AS220 in its entirety, even the Dreyfus roof. AS220’s annual fundraiser occurred just as I entered the city and allowed me to meet all the staff, the city, the artists, restaurants, and volunteers all at once.
I’m really enjoying the workplace, staff, and all the programs AS220 offers. The VISTA sites also deserve a standing ovation for what they are creating and providing to the community. A community youth orchestra, youth-driven social enterprise, and community micro loans/coaching are just a few programs that I’ve had a chance to see first-hand.
