In conjunction with AmeriCorps week, our Serve Illinois Volunteer of the Week is an AmeriCorps member. Abby Sagher has been working with Beyond Sports Foundation working with student athletes in Highland Park as an academic tutor. She joined as an AmeriCorps member during service year 2017-18.
During the week, Abby works for a college access and persistence program. For Abby, the best part about working at Beyond Sports Foundation is the students - whether it's being a part of their many "a-ha moments," building relationships, or seeing their teamwork on the court or field.
Abby also enjoys meeting and networking with other tutors and AmeriCorps volunteers and creating lasting relationships based on trust and mutual understanding.
