Americorps Massachusetts Promise Fellow
Amanda Maddalone serves as a AmeriCorps Massachusetts Promise Fellow here at the Marine Science Center. She is a member of the Outreach team, and coordinates the Beach Sister program with Girls Inc. of Lynn. She will be implementing marine and environmental science curriculum in their after-school program. She received her Bachelors in Environmental Science at Elon University in North Carolina. During her undergrad she took a course in Hawaii about humpback whale research and conservation. The following summer, she interned as an educator aboard a whale watch boat in Gloucester, MA. She has developed a strong love for marine life, as well as education. She is thrilled to be working in an environment where she gets to experience both.
