Mary Alas headshotHello fellow Alumni of Horizons Greater Washington!

My name is Mary Haydee Alas, the AmeriCorps VISTA at Horizons Greater Washington, and I am here to assist you on your journey through high school, career exploration and higher education. As an alumni of HGW my goal is to provide you with specific and individualized support by getting to know you personally through Saturday Academy and/or monthly check-ins.


The support we offer includes but is not limited to:

  • Finding volunteer opportunities
  • College application support & feedback
  • Exploring organizational tools intended to aid your growth as a student
  • General health and wellness check-ins
  • Career exploration

If our programming cannot yet support you directly, we will help you seek out the appropriate resources you need (ex: tutoring).

All in all, we are working to create a program that supports you all beyond your last summer as a student. We want to hear back from you, regardless of how long you have been out of the program!
