  8. Antoinette Adkins Downriver CARES AmeriCorps Alum “My first challenge was to pick a placement that could accommodate me. Fortunately, there were many to choose from. With the help of a great program director, I was able meet the challenge head on and find incredible placements! I have enjoyed being a part of the AmeriCorps family. Serving adults with various mental illnesses - teaching them life skills - has increased my desire to go back to school to achieve my Ph.D. I have formed friendships I never expected, helping me to grow and learn about myself too! AmeriCorps is an experience I will never forget.”
