We are excited to welcome our new AmeriCorps Member, Jenna Binsfeld! Jenna is serving as our Intensive Community Orientation AmeriCorps Member and she will be taking over the new arrivals orientation program.
Jenna recently graduated from Boston University with majors in International Relations and Economics. In addition to these courses, she pursued the study of the Arabic language and service work with refugees, culminating in a semester abroad in Jordan volunteering with refugees from throughout the Middle East and Africa. She hopes to gain further knowledge of her diverse home community, and provide a platform for increased understanding and cultural fusion in the Twin Cities.
Jenna is originally from the Twin Cities and would love to eventually return to the Middle East and continue studying Arabic.
If you volunteer with our ICO classes or are interested in connecting with that program, we hope you’ll have the chance to meet Jenna soon!
