Serving Everywhere, From Office to Field
Brady and Hannah share stories about their roles as a Volunteer Coordinator and a Construction Volunteer Facilitator, how AmeriCorps has changed them, and where they're going next.
Making an Impact Locally
Every spring, AmeriCorps members spend a week serving organizations across the country. Due to COVID-19, Corps Week looked different in 2021. Members still had a great time connecting and making a difference in the community.
