Thousands of nonprofit and community organizations depend on AmeriCorps members to get things done in their communities every day. But what is an AmeriCorps program and how can you use this resource to strengthen your community?
National Volunteer Week (NVW) is April 15 - 21, 2018! NVW, sponsored by Points of Light, is an opportunity to recognize and thank volunteers who lend their time, talent, voice and support to causes they care about in their community. Their stories can serve to inspire others to find ways to take action that creates change. During National Volunteer Week, we celebrate the impact of volunteer service and the power of changemakers to come together to tackle tough challenges, and build stronger, more vibrant communities.
AmeriCorps Week is a celebration of all things AmeriCorps – from the programs and organizations that make this national service initiative possible in thousands of locations across the country, to the members who have committed to "Get Things Done" since the program’s inception in 1994.
