My name is Christopher Steinle and I grew up outside of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. I am an eleven-year veteran of the U.S. Coast Guard where I developed several skills that I’m expecting to transfer to the environmental field. I have a bachelor’s and associate’s degree and I’m intending to finish a master’s program in public administration so I can serve my community and my country at a greater capacity.
I believe the Mt. Adams Institute AmeriCorps internship program will provide me opportunities to learn new skills that are desired for future employment and meet new people. Additionally, I believe that being in the service of others can make the heart whole because we can use our talents to make our community a better place to live and perhaps make someone else’s life a little more joyous. This is primarily where my strength comes from, and where our paths meet with Mt. Adams Institute and AmeriCorps.
