Norte’s Summer Interns and VISTAS

Last week, Norte welcomed three new faces to the team for summer, Chris Gagnon (pronounced, Gon-Ya), Chelsea Gilpin, and George Townsend. We’re thrilled to have all three of them.

Chris (on the right above) is joining us as an intern through his social work studies at Northwestern Michigan College. Chelsea and George both join us as AmeriCorps Summer Associate VISTAs. In addition to helping the summer roll smoothly, all three will be working with our program team to help measure the impact of Summer Bike Camp. Chelsea and George are specifically examining Norte’s effort to reduce summer learning loss.

All three of them are a delight. So when you see Chris, Chelsea, and George, be sure to introduce yourself and give them a giant orange welcome.
