ICAP member who volunteers with Abbe Farms:

ICAP is a way for me to set job and life experience. I find it very rewarding the things I learn from the places I volunteer. I think they get a lot out of it as well. Most of the time they go out of their way to tell me how much they appreciate me. This is something I would like to do for the rest of my life.

ICAP member who volunteers with Willis Dady:

ICAP is my pledge and commitment to serving others and finding moments in my life to make an impact in the lives of others. I look at my 300 hours of service and say, “This is my dedication to other people, to my favorite cause or social issue, and I am motivated by this mindset.”

ICAP member who volunteers with EMT service:

ICAP is a way to consciously give back to the community. Instead of just volunteering, I am able to reflect and share how my work benefits others.

ICAP member who volunteers with EMT service:

ICAP is a way to give back and also get recognized. I already do all the service now I am getting a little more from it whether it is finding motivation to do new projects or to connect with others about the projects they do that I might not have known about before.

ICAP member an Iowa native who volunteers with Facing Project & Civic Engagement Office as Volunteer Coordinator:

When I came to Cornell I knew that I wanted to join AmeriCorps after I graduated. When I learned about ICAP, I discovered a way to begin investigating this future career path and to give back to both Iowa City and Cornell.
