How can your State Commission benefit
from partnering with AmeriCorps Alums?
An effective alumni network is the most important link to connect AmeriCorps members to your programs. AmeriCorps alumni are an extraordinary resource for current AmeriCorps programs, serving as mentors, service project volunteers, motivational speakers, and much more.
Preparing your corps members for life after AmeriCorps and keeping your program alumni connected is as easy as contracting with AmeriCorps Alums. Here are three easy ways to partner:
- Let Us Come to You: High Quality Training
- Give the Gift of Gear: New Merchandise Line
- The Gift that Lasts a Lifetime: Sponsorship
Let Us Come to You: High Quality Training
We have alums who are professional trainers ready to facilitate workshops, give speeches or sit on panels at your next event. Who better to speak to/relate to corps members than former corps members?! We also do train the trainer sessions for your Program Directors.
Sample topics include:
§ Making the Most of Your Service Year
§ Making the Most of Your Segal Education Award
§ Team Building Initiatives, Communicating through Conflict
§ Personality Preferences and Work Teams
As an added bonus we can do:
§ Alumni Pledge/pinning Induction ceremony with "Lifetime of Service” 10-20 minute speech
Give the Gift of Gear: New Merchandise Line
A wonderful gift to outgoing corps members that they are sure to love is a pin, t-shirt, hat or ‘choch-key’ that they will proudly wear as an alum. AmeriCorps Alums partners with Social Imprints to provide you with a top notch line of gear.

The Gift that Lasts a Lifetime: Sponsorship Benefits
Help us help you keep your alumni engaged so they can stay connected to your program and to the Ameri-Family in general.
You can ensure that your outgoing corps members are a part of the powerful AmeriCorps Alums network by sponsoring them as a group. All you need to do is send their name, email address and $25 per member and your group will be inducted into the alumni network (discounted bulk rate available for over 100-member groups).
Your members will immediately start connecting with our network of alums and partners, such as our higher education institution partners who provide scholarships to alums. In addition, as "sponsors” they receive a free merchandise item and a quarterly newsletter with opportunities just for alums!
