Plan now for AmeriCorps Week!

AmeriCorps Week (March 10-16) is a celebration of all things AmeriCorps – from the organizations that make the initiative possible, to the members who have pledged to “Get Things Done”.

We encourage you to take this opportunity to share with others what you do in service, how your service is transforming your community, and how they can serve in the Washington Service Corps. To get you started, we've created a toolkit with various ways to spread the word.

"For me, AmeriCorps has been a great opportunity to engage with so many new people and learn how to take initiative in new situations. AmeriCorps has given me the confidence to perform my best even when I am still learning the ropes."  -- Connor Hall, Clark County Food Bank
