Trekkers hires new AmeriCorps member
Tenants Harbor — Trekkers announced recently that Alaina Ennamorati has begun an 11-month term of service as an AmeriCorps volunteer funded by the Corporation for National and Community Service.
Ennamorati will work within the communities of Cushing, St. George, Thomaston, South Thomaston, Owls Head and Rockland to expand and maintain Trekkers programming and organizational capacity. She was recruited in partnership with the Great Strides Rural Education Corps, an AmeriCorps program of Goodwill Industries of Northern New England
Ennamorati grew up locally in Waldoboro and recently returned to the area while completing her field work for her graduate degree in Intercultural Service, Leadership, and Management at SIT Graduate Institute in Brattleboro, Vt. She completed her degree in July through AmeriCorps, where she served an 11-month term as a Programs Coordinator at Hardy Girls Healthy Women in Waterville. She graduated in 2008 from Northeastern University with a bachelor's degree in journalism and a minor in Spanish. She loves to travel, meet new people, run, write, and work with youth in a variety of capacities, including sports, literacy, one-on-one and in groups.
"I am so excited to join the Trekkers team and have the opportunity to serve in the Midcoast area, where I grew up. I really believe in the organization's mission and look forward to building relationships with youth through adventure-based programming," Ennamorati said in an email.
Specifically, she will be the program coordinator, working to expand offerings including tutoring and Trekkers peer mentoring program Big Trek/Little Trek. Ennamorati will also help in organizing expeditions, recruiting volunteers and overall administrative assistance.
