We are fortunate to have two Americorps volunteers serve Austin Free-Net this fiscal year—Alix T. Potter and Greg De Thomaso. AmeriCorps engages more than 75,000 Americans in intensive service each year at nonprofits, schools, public agencies, and community and faith-based groups across the country.
Greg is an Americorps Volunteer in Service to America (VISTA) and he started at the beginning of November to help with our fund development department. As a former business analyst for a corporation, Greg will assist AFN in expanding and strengthening our development initiatives.
Alix started in October and provides direct services to our clients. She is the Program Specialist working with the Tech Starter II Program with the Housing Authority of the City of Austin. This past August, Alix was spotlighted as our “Volunteer Extraordinaire” for her phenomenal work with the first Tech Starter program.
We are excited to have both of these talented and committed volunteers join our team.
