Jenika McCrayerJenika McCrayer (GSWS): AmeriCorps
As a member of the AmeriCorps, I will be spending the 2013-2014 school year with the non-profit organization Boys Hope Girls Hope in San Francisco, California. There I will mentor students from adverse backgrounds, and serve as a liaison between teachers, students, parents, and BHGH in order to help these students succeed and eventually make it to college.

Nicole McCauley (GSWS/English): AmeriCorpsNicole McCauley
I graduated from W&M in 2013 with an English and Gender, Sexuality, and Women's Studies dual degree. In the Fall, I will begin working in Ashland, Oregon through AmeriCorps as the Coordinator for the Southern Oregon University Multicultural Mentoring Program. I will be working with the university's Diversity Resource Center, Queer Resource Center, and Women's Resource Center to create a mentoring program between Southern Oregon University students and local high school students from underrepresented racial, sexual orientation, disability, and religious backgrounds. The students in the mentoring program have certain limitations to achieving their higher education goals and I aim to do everything in my power to help them meet their goals. I am thrilled to start working and I know that my Gender, Sexuality, and Women's Studies degree has prepared me extremely well for the tasks at hand. I willuse my W&M GSWST degree to inspire, encourage, and support students on their journey to becoming more enlightened individuals. (2013)
