Cashmiere Jones, AmeriCorps Vista Member

Cash joined our team in August of 2020. As an AmeriCorps Vista Member, she contributes to recruiting and engaging volunteers, assisting with mentoring initiatives, and resource coordination.

Cash has several years of mentoring experience with youth and college students. At Albion College, Cash’s alma mater, she worked as a student mentor and mentor coordinator for incoming minority students and young girls from the city of Albion. She saw the impact that lack of motivation, resources, and support can do- to minority students – it was the driving force behind her decision to join our team.

“A lot of people don’t understand the challenges many high school students face when they’re surrounded by adults who haven’t graduated from high school, or the pressure that comes with being a first-generation college student. There’s a lot of complacency in our community and often that behavior is passed on to the kids. We must stop the cycle of settling for less. I am honored to contribute to the work of this amazing organization and help kids reach their full potential.”

Cash is a proud Detroit native and 2019 graduate of Albion College with a Bachelor of Arts in Sociology. In her off time, you will find Cash with her little sister, Grace, or reading a new book. She also enjoys traveling, trying new food, going to concerts, and finding spare time to take a quality nap.
