AmeriCorps Spotlight

  1. Updates

This month, we’d like to spotlight and thank our AmeriCorps members for their community service and positive impact on Pennsylvania’s children in and out of the classroom.

Since the founding of AmeriCorps in 1994, AmeriCorps members have served countless communities with powerful solutions as they tackle the tough challenges we face each day: helping kids graduate from high school, responding to disasters, making neighborhoods safer, caring for seniors, supporting military veterans and families, preserving our parks and much more.

Learn more about how you can celebrate how AmeriCorps members become shining examples to others: AmeriCorps Week 2018.
