Meet the LB AmeriCorps Team

Name: Brad Falco

Age: 24
From: Stuart, FL
Before AmeriCorps: I worked full time as a maintenance tech for an RV rental company. 
Education: I graduated from University of Central Florida in 2014 with a bachelor’s degree in Political Science. 
Why you joined NCCC: I liked the idea of traveling and volunteering. Both of my parents worked for the state of Florida dealing with the public daily. That and being an Eagle Scout instilled in me the value of community service. The Segal education award was enticing, too. 
Favorite Project: My favorite project so far was doing trail maintenance on the Kirk Creek Trail in Big Sur, CA. Three day weekends, camping, and getting to hike daily in one of the most beautiful parts of the United States was great. 
Favorite part of Little Basin: The project work here is diverse, which is cool. We do campground maintenance and get to do outdoor education. The staff is awesome and the campground is nice. 
After AmeriCorps: After NCCC I’m planning on doing an AmeriCorps VISTA program, hopefully working with a non-profit law firm. If not that, I’ll be looking into a graduate school.
