Erin Riley, Program Director
Erin is excited to rejoin the VHCB AmeriCorps team in the Program Director role. Erin is an AmeriCorps alum. She first served after college in San Francisco and again in 2011 as a VISTA member in Wyoming. Erin has witnessed firsthand how AmeriCorps meets the needs of communities while simultaneously providing opportunities for members to grow both professionally and personally. Erin worked with the VHCB AmeriCorps team as the Program Coordinator from 2015 to 2018. She relocated briefly to Charlotte, North Carolina where she worked for a nonprofit that trains and manages volunteers to tutor elementary students.
Hailing from Vermont, Erin missed the green mountains (winters too!) and returned to Vermont in 2020. Since that time she has been working at VHCB on the housing team as a Housing Analyst. Erin currently lives in Plainfield with her partner, Ehren, and their senior cat Iggy.
Madi Watt, Program Coordinator
Madi is joining the VHCB AmeriCorps team after serving with AmeriCorps and then FoodCorps in Utah and Montana. In her service, Madi was working directly with kids and families, in schools and in the community, to promote food literacy and access. She came to Vermont to be closer to family and lush forests, and is excited to support service members as they take on community projects and grow as humans. Madi is passionate about all things planet and food. When not working, you can find her splashing in local water holes with her two dogs or skiing around with her farmer husband.
