Happy AmeriCorps Week!

  1. Updates

Each year during AmeriCorps Week, the commitment of AmeriCorps members and alums is recognized by highlighting the extraordinary impact the organization makes across the nation every day.

AmeriCorps Week is a time to salute members and alums for their service, thank community partners, and communicate AmeriCorps impact on communities and on the lives of those who serve.

This year's theme, AmeriCorps Works, reflects their triple bottom line return on investment — for the recipients of service, the people who serve, and the larger community and nation.

Playworks Milwaukee is proud to participate for the first time and recognize our first group of AmeriCorps coaches!
