Christina Mazzatti is continuing to make an impact in the lives of people diagnosed with a developmental disability through the Camphill AmeriCorps program.
Mazzatti, originally from Southington, worked for National Civilian Community Corps of AmeriCorps in the Pacific Region states in 2014 and 2015. She is now working at Camphill Soltane, a five-year liberal arts based organization in southeastern Pennsylvania that assists residents with developmental disabilities.
In the future, Christina wishes to keep spreading the “giving back” to any community as much as possible. “Working at Camphill AmeriCorps is a great way to help the community,” she said in a recent Americorps press release, “especially if you have the love and care for those with special needs.”
AmeriCorps was founded in 1994 and is commonly known as the domestic Peace Corps. The program engages more than 80,000 Americans in intensive service each year at local nonprofits like the Camphill Communities of North America. Over the past 20 years, more than 900,000 AmeriCorps members have contributed more than 1.2 billion hours in service across America while tackling pressing problems and mobilizing millions of volunteers for the organizations they serve.
