Celebrating AmeriCorps Week with Service!

  1. Updates

AmeriCorps Week is when we celebrate and highlight the great work of our AmeriCorps members across the nation.

At Playworks Illinois, we want to give a huge whoosh clap to our AmeriCorps members for their commitment to service. Here is just one example of how they go above and beyond:

This past January, Playworks Illinois staff and AmeriCorps members painted a mural to show love and appreciation for one of our partner schools to commemorate Martin Luther King Jr. Day. Everyone worked together and painted a part of the mural, ended the day with a full beautiful mural to go in the cafeteria at the school. This project would not have been possible without the hard work, dedication, and teamwork of this year’s cohort of coaches!
