About the 20th Anniversary
Every day in communities across America, AmeriCorps
members are making a powerful impact on the most critical issues facing
Since its inception, more than 820,000 men and women
have taken the AmeriCorps pledge, serving more than one billion hours
and improving the lives of countless Americans. Â Â Starting in September
2013, we will recognize the commitment of AmeriCorps members and alums
and highlight the extraordinary impact AmeriCorps has made for 20 years.
To celebrate AmeriCorps 20th Anniversary, Volunteer West
Virginia is featuring outstanding AmeriCorps alums. These West Virginia
alumni were selected to share their stories of how “It all Started
With AmeriCorps”. This is a sample of the many lives and communities
impacted through national service in West Virginia.
If you know of an outstanding West Virginia AmeriCorps alumni that should
be recognized please contact Dana Myslinsky, 304-558-0111 or email@example.com.
