AmeriCorps Week


Help us celebrate AmeriCorps Week, March 4-11, 2017.  During this week individuals, programs, and organizations will honor and celebrate the contributions that 80,000 Americans make to their communities and the service of more than 1 million AmeriCorps alumni.

Beyond showing appreciation for AmeriCorps members, Volunteer Iowa and the Corporation for National and Community Services seeks to increase overall awareness of the valuable contributions they make to communities and our country.  So this is the time we go all out to thank our members and get others to thank them too (think proclamations, editorials, and blogposts), share our impact, and show our “A.”  We also want to have some fun, because after all, service is hard work ... and a little fun keeps us motivated.  This year, AmeriCorps Week will be celebrated across the country on March 4-11, 2017.

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

Follow along with the activities with hashtag #AmeriCorpsWorks and on the AmeriCorps Week Splash Page!
