2010 Corpsmember of the Year: William Brandt
In his youth, William Brandt’s lack of direction was aggravated by substance abuse. He got into trouble with the law.
But when he heard about the Urban Corps of San Diego—and the opportunity to get paid, get trained, and earn a diploma, all at the same time—his goals came quickly into focus. The Corps staff treated him as a young professional, and William rose to the challenge.
Today William is a self-possessed young man who represents the Corps in outreach events, is currently studying at the community college, with the aim of getting his associates’ degree in drug and alcohol counseling with an emphasis on social work.
At the same time, he will be serving as an AmeriCorps VISTA in the Restoring Youth and Communities program in San Diego, which works within parole and corrections offices, counseling and mentoring youth in the justice system.
