Best-in-Class Training: Playworks Honored by Service Year Alliance

  1. Updates

Playworks is thrilled to be honored by Service Year Alliance as one of 28 winners of the 2017 Best Practices Competition. Winners are recognized for the creation of outstanding resources to support the development of AmeriCorps members.

Playworks’ “Life After AmeriCorps” resources earned recognition. We created this training to help AmeriCorps coaches navigate their next steps after their service year, including identifying a career focus, job searching, and writing resumes and cover letters. 

Service Year Alliance will compile the best practices from competition winners and turn them into templates to further the personal and professional development of AmeriCorps members nationally.

We’re excited to be recognized by Service Year Alliance and eager to collaborate with other organizations to create top resources for our AmeriCorps members.  Read more about the competition
