A Service Excursion by Jason Beinemann

Jason serving with Care Force

Hi, my name is Jason Beinemann. I am a Senior Corps Member on the City Year Milwaukee Start-Up Team. A few weeks ago, I was given an amazing opportunity to step out of the City Year Milwaukee offices and get my hands dirty with some good old physical service down in Charleston, South Carolina. I was an honorary member of Care Force. Care Force is a division of City Year, Inc., that engages our corporate partners and their employees in high-impact community service events. They travel across the country and put on large scale service events to improve youth and family-focused educational, recreational and residential facilities.  During this particular week, we were prepping for a service day for one of our corporate sponsors, CSX. This service day involved revitalizing a park by installing a frisbee golf course, new plants and benches, as well as painting murals and picking up the trash around the park grounds. It was a very challenging and enjoyable week of service. I will take a lot from that experience and bring it to Milwaukee, where our service events will be transformative, inspirational, and sustainable!
