AmeriCorps Week 2017

“Everybody can be great because anybody can serve.” –Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

Join us in a week-long celebration of all the contributions AmeriCorps members make in our communities. This year, 273 Playworks AmeriCorps coaches have served a total of 196,375 hours during the 2016-17 school year. Playworks coaches are #gettingthingdone by making playgrounds safer and by creating positive school environments where every kid can succeed. In return, each member is proud of the work they do and is empowered to continue their efforts to inspire youth. Our communities are better because of their dedicated service. Hats off to you, AmeriCorps members!
