Hello! :)

1399536616

Hello every­one! I am writ­ing to intro­duce myself as the new Ameri­Corps mem­ber with Pipeline!

I just grad­u­ated from the Uni­ver­sity of Wash­ing­ton with a BA in Soci­ol­ogy and a minor in Edu­ca­tion, Learn­ing & Soci­ety. As an under­grad, I was involved in the Pipeline Project, Poly­ne­sian Stu­dent Alliance, Sigma Lambda Gamma National Soror­ity, Inc. and the Ambas­sador pro­gram for the Office of Minor­ity Affairs and Diver­sity Recruit­ment & Out­reach office! My favorite thing about par­tic­i­pat­ing in Pipeline as an under­grad were the count­less oppor­tu­ni­ties I had to work one on one with stu­dents in all sorts of top­ics (math, sci­ence, eng­lish, pho­tog­ra­phy) where I was able to leave inspired and feel like I was really con­tribut­ing. I absolutely LOVE the UW and am so excited to be able to work for Pipeline!

If you want to know more about my time at UW, you can look here:  www.sionelister.weebly.com/

Hope to see you soon! Come say hi :)

Do you love work­ing with ele­men­tary stu­dents?  Are you inter­ested in immers­ing your­self in the beauty and strength of the Native Makah cul­ture in Neah Bay?  Do you want a deep, engag­ing, non-traditional learn­ing expe­ri­ence in the Pacific Northwest?

Note that this project will require a non-negotiable 3-quarter com­mit­ment, as well as a 2 week part­ner­ship expe­ri­ence dur­ing Sep­tem­ber (9/8 – 9/12 in Seat­tle and 9/15 – 9/19 in Neah Bay), and trav­el­ing to  Neah Bay dur­ing spring break.
