Please welcome Grace Ragain who has joined us at the Center for Service-Learning and Civic Engagement as an AmeriCorps VISTA!

Grace is a May 2019 graduate from the University of Kentucky with a Bachelor’s of Science in Community and Leadership Development (CLD) with internship experiences at the Governor’s Office of Agricultural Policy, The Plantory, and UK’s Cooperative Extension Program. She has Alternative Service Break experiences in California and Washington DC as well as education abroad experiences in Europe and Cuba.

Grace will be supporting the mission of the Center through outreach, research, assessment, and program implementation. We are very excited to have her onboard!

Over the summer we asked organizations in Lexington to catalog their organizational needs to facilitate connecting UK resources to those needs through service-learning, volunteering, internships, research, etc.
