Corpsmember Story: Marcelina Armas

Corpsmember Marcelina Armas hands a fellow Sacramento Energy Corpsmember a screwdriver during a light retrofit project in Sacramento, CA.

CCC Sacramento Corpsmember Marcelina Armas admits to being very quiet and keeping to herself before joining the CCC Energy Corps.

Now, she’s not only learning about wiring and light retrofits, but developing what we call “soft skills”—everything from interviewing to public speaking and teamwork.

Marcelina is gaining self-confidence and even recently spoke to a large group of educators about her CCC experience—something she wouldn’t have the nerve to do just four months ago.
