We have proudly hosted more than 20 AmeriCorps members over the last seven years, and they have played a critical role in our efforts to ensure that homeowners in need in our community can live independently in safe and healthy homes. Friends of Rebuilding Together Twin Cities frequently ask us for updates on AmeriCorps alumni, and we thought we’d share an update on our most recent AmeriCorps alumni: Alina Stevenson, Jessie Livingston, and Kyle Swatfager.
Alina Stevenson – After successfully completing her first year of law school at the University of Oregon, Alina accepted a summer position at a nonprofit in Seattle called Legal Voice where she will be working on women’s issues in legislation, including revising and drafting bills so they include protections for women.
Jessie Livingston – Jessie is studying in Costa Rica, after spending a month and a half at an activist language school in Guatemala. She is planning to head to Panama and then Nicaragua to continue her studies this semester and will spend the summer working at a camp in Northern California.
Kyle Swatfager – This past fall, Kyle joined the Rebuilding Together Twin Cities team as our Project Coordinator. He is responsible for overseeing our Critical Repair projects from start to finish, including previewing projects, developing the scopes of work, determining volunteer and contracted labor needs, and working to ensure that projects are completed within budget and time constraints. We are thrilled to have Kyle on our team!
