We’re celebrating the more than 80,000 members engaged in national service.

Each year during AmeriCorps Week, Playworks recognizes the commitment of our AmeriCorps members by highlighting the extraordinary impact they make across the nation every day. This year, from March 9 through 13, we will be celebrating AmeriCorps Week by saluting members and alums for their service, thanking community partners, and communicating AmeriCorps’ impact on communities and on the lives of those who serve.

Visit your community's pages and Playworks on Facebook to read inspiring stories about our featured AmeriCorps coaches from around the country.
