This is our first #WhyIServe post in a new series that will showcase the many reasons why our AmeriCorps members were inspired to dedicate a year to service.
We are kicking off the series with Alex Owens, a graduate of UC Riverside from Moreno Valley, California. Alex is serving his second year with City Year L.A. as a Team Leader at Roosevelt High School. He is passionate about serving the Boyle Heights community of Los Angeles.
