Welcome to new AmeriCorps member James Hartrick

James started his AmeriCorps service Sept. 1.

Last week our new AmeriCorps member, James Hartrick, arrived and we’re happy to have him on board. That means he’ll be busy doing all of my work! Just kidding, James.

James lives in Royal Oak, where he was born and raised. He received a B.S. in Environmental Science while concentrating in Urban Planning. While at the University of Michigan he was a member of Amnesty International, Human Rights through Education, The Detroit Partnership, The Men’s Glee Club, and the Semester in Detroit Planning Team. With interests in food security and education plus a minor in peace and social justice, it’s no surprise he was drawn to Operation Frontline and AmeriCorps.

During his year of service he is eager to help us grow our program, saying he wants to be a part of that growth. Among the many responsibilities James will handle this year include coordinating classes, managing our inventory and creating videos.

Post-AmeriCorps he is interested in going back to school and pursuing either public policy, urban planning or law.

He is a soccer player and an avid music fan. His favorite genres of music are new wave, funk & soul, and hip hop, and his favorite band is Talking Heads. He enjoys the outdoors and loves living
Michigan due to the state’s abundance of fresh water, especially in the Great Lakes.

Welcome James!
