AmeriCorps Week 2024

  1. Updates

This week, we are spotlighting our Playworks AmeriCorps Coaches and saying #AmeriThanks!

During #AmeriCorpsWeek, we are giving our best Appreciation Claps to our 74 AmeriCorps Members completing their service year with Playworks. These dedicated, hardworking, playful Coaches are working in 67 schools in 7 regions, bringing the power of play to thousands of kids.

In total, they have already completed 58,007 hours of service and 14 regional service projects for 9/11 National Day of Service and MLK National Day of Service. 

This year of service brings with it a unique meaning to each coach. A couple coaches shared,

Service means showing up as your best self while helping others become theirs.” – Coach Justice

Service to me is a selfless act where your actions are not for your own benefit, but for the benefit of others” – Coach Nayo

Please join us in celebrating these individuals having an incredible impact in their communities each and every day!
