This Saturday, March 9th, marks the beginning of AmeriCorps week!
AmeriCorps Week aims to build awareness of national community service in communities across the country. AmeriCorps members have completed one billion hours of service since 1994, and this week celebrates their accomplishments and highlights the importance of what alumni have done and what current members continue to do.
The theme for AmeriCorps Week 2013 is “Made in AmeriCorps.” AmeriCorps provides its members with chances to improve not only their country, but themselves. Members learn the value of helping others, have a chance to learn a variety of skills, and become leaders in their communities.
Here at Mile High Youth Corps, Corpsmembers will be celebrating AmeriCorps Week by doing several different service projects on Friday, March 15th. They will be displaying all the ways they were Made in AmeriCorps by cleaning up a neighborhood, serving at a food bank, and doing many other projects in the Denver area.
Our Corpsmembers are extraordinary young men and women and the future leaders of this country!
How are you Made in AmeriCorps?
