Alyssa Garcia

Operational Staff

I was born and raised in Miami, Florida and graduated from the International Baccalaureate program at Coral Reef Senior High School in 2010. I attended and graduated from the University of Miami with a Bachelor’s of Science in Neuroscience and a minor in Chemistry in 2014.

I first volunteered at VACC Camp in 2009 in order to complete my CAS project for the IB program. After the first day of camp, I knew I would be spending every future spring break there. I was later asked to become a Team Leader and my experience as one has helped me obtain team building and leadership skills. Throughout my years at camp I have met extraordinary people who go above and beyond to make this camp a success that I am very happy to call friends now.

My hope as an Operations Staff Member is to assist in continuing the success of camp for many more years and sharing this wonderful experience with future volunteers.
