Volunteer of the Week

Trevon Jordan

Trevon Jordan“Trevon not only works hard, but he pushes himself to go above the necessary requirements of the task, to fulfill and accomplish more than anticipated”

As an AmeriCorps member Trevon served four years of service in the Belleville school district. He was aware of the needs in his community, and remembered attending after school programs with AmeriCorps members. Once able, Trevon decided to also become an AmeriCorps member so he too could assist in serving those needs. Within the school district he became a “positive presence” for the children, tutoring them in both reading and math. He often worked in small groups, was a summer camp counselor, and has been known to be “tackled” by the students on the playground a time or two! During his four year term Trevon never hesitated to get his hands dirty. He participated in 17 service projects in just three months, which was far more than his required six. Upon a quarterly review he had served some of the highest service hours of all the members within his site. Trevon has been described as an inspiration to other AmeriCorps members. His commitment, passion, and reliability have set him apart from others. Both his AmeriCorps site and the school district he serves rely heavily on his dedication. Trevon managed to accomplish his abundance of service to his community while attending college. Since finishing his term Trevon accepted a position within the Belleville school district. He continues to be a person passionate to make a difference in his community.
