Catherine Moeller’s Experience with AmeriCorps



This past year Catherine Moeller has served with AmeriCorps in Salinas, California, working with Hispanic children, most of whom are children of migrant workers. This experience prepared her well for her call to ELCA’s Young Adults in Global Mission program where she will spend next year in Mexico doing service work for the church. Photos documenting her experiences in Salinas are posted to illustrate this article.
