Midterm Training

Feb. 15-17, 2023

During February 15-17th, 2023, AmeriCorps members from Marshfield Clinic Health System’s Community Corps and Recovery Corps programs gathered at the Kalahari in Wisconsin Dells for their first in person, group gathering in nearly three years. This Midterm Training was intended to bring members together to promote networking, professional development, and to rejuvenate members as they continue towards completion of a successful term of service.

A variety of speakers were invited to share their expertise on topics such as non-apparent disability and identity, mental health, self-care, and trauma informed care. Members were also offered the opportunity to take a DiSC personal skills assessment and have a professional headshot photo taken. Additionally, four program alumni shared with current members their experience as a member and the transition into life after AmeriCorps. Lastly, attendees came together to complete several service projects which included painting kindness rocks, making cards for nursing homes, and writing letters to veterans. Overall, it was a successful event that resulted in members and program staff alike feeling more connected with each other, excited for the remainder of the term, and grateful for the time together in person.
