“I support WVU Extension to ensure civil rights compliance in all Extension programs. Over the summer, I visited 14 of our 4H camps.”
Meet Ebony Martin, our AmeriCorps Civil Rights and Diversity VISTA! She plays a pivotal role in collecting vital data for the USDA Civil Rights Review. Her dedication supports not just one program, but ALL of WVU Extension's initiatives.
Where are you from?
What is the overview of your role?
I support WVU Extension to ensure civil rights compliance in all Extension programs.
Why did you join AmeriCorps?
I was looking for something to do while finishing my thesis and I liked the experience I could gain from serving in Extension.
What has been your favorite activity or accomplishment since starting your service?
I supported Extension in retrieving data required for the USDA civil rights review. In the end, 400 documents were shared in preparation for the next processes in the audit. Additionally, over the summer I visited 14 of our 4H camps and will be sending out reviews to their county leaders at the end of the year. These reviews will assess the performance of the camp, give critical feedback and praise, and make recommendations.
