On September 12, 2014, the nation will mark the 20th anniversary of AmeriCorps with a simultaneous, nationwide swearing-in ceremony of the next class of AmeriCorps members. As part of this national event, Serve Washington (formerly known as the Washington Commission for National and Community Service - WCNCS) is hosting a statewide swearing-in from 11:00 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. on the north steps of the State Capitol building.
The commission would be honored if you would join them for this historic occasion to offer celebrate the extraordinary impact of AmeriCorps over the last 20 years and welcome in a new class of AmeriCorps members as they embark on their year of service. They expect up to 1,000 AmeriCorps members, alums, nonprofit leaders, corporate champions, and other partners to attend.
Every day in communities across Washington state, AmeriCorps members are making a powerful impact on the most critical issues facing our communities. Whether improving schools, fighting poverty, rebuilding after disasters, providing health services, preserving the environment, or supporting veterans and military families, AmeriCorps members get things done.
