She has never shied away from doing whatever it takes to get the job done

Martina McCormick has been working with BACR National Service for over 3 years - both as an AmeriCorps member and as a staff member.  In Martina’s 3 years at BACR she has worked very hard to exemplify BACR's best practices.  She has never shied away from doing whatever it takes to get the job done, especially when it comes to recruiting and hiring local community members to join our AmeriCorps programs and serve their respective communities.  

 Martina hits the ground running to recruit local community members, and uses every means possible to do so. She is always the biggest advocate for our AmerICorps members, guaranteeing that they receive the best support possible to enjoy a successful term.  Martina exemplifies 2 of BACR best practices: 

 1.  Recognizing the needs and strengths of the people we serve and supporting their development.

 2. Working within communities and building alliances to meet community needs.
