Aidan Greenwald

Marine Mammal Center
AmeriCorps Fellow, Community Engagement

I am a native of Los Angeles and a recent graduate from the University of California, Santa Cruz where I earned a degree in Biology and Environmental Studies. I am excited to start as the Volunteer Engagement AmeriCorps Fellow position with the Marine Mammal Center. I’ve always had a love for conservation and the natural sciences. That interest has taken me from researching mountain lion behavior in Santa Cruz mountains, to studying coastal ecology on desert islands and teaching young children about nature and the ecology with the Audubon Society. I’m ready to be part of the team and to do my part to help our awesome volunteers and support the mission of the Marine Mammal Center!

Jack Hill

Downtown Streets Team - San Francisco
AmeriCorps Fellow, Community Engagement

Jack from the onset of my career path, I was drawn to two seemingly opposite things: the influence of politics and the altruism of service. I found them married in AmeriCorps, where I could use my understanding of politics to help the underprivileged and employ my skills to aid an organization that was truly making an impact in The San Francisco Bay Area. Almost immediately, I found an organization (Downtown Streets Team) that not only shared my vision of a more equitable society, but also allowed me to utilize my skills in messaging and networking to the best of my ability. I am excited to be serving with Downtown Streets Team, AmeriCorps and every individual who is truly making an impact in the lives of others—and I look forward to be able to do so for many more years.
