STEVENSON CENTER OFFERS $60K IN SUPPORT OF ALUMNI STUDENTS

Today’s sponsored blog is written by the Illinois State University’s Stevenson Center whose Applied Community and Economic Development (ACED) Fellows Program includes a 100% tuition waiver for all courses and a paid graduate assistantship. AmeriCorps alum Bunmi Akinnusotu says, “I would absolutely recommend the Stevenson Center to others.  I found the practical learning approach to be extremely helpful to my career. I gained an appreciation for unpacking tough questions and bringing a more critical lens to research that can actually help change or influence conclusions. When I sit in meetings or when things come up, I listen differently because of what I know about how communities operate and what tools are at my disposal to address problems.” Read more …

DID YOU SERVE BETWEEN '94-'04? THIS CLUB IS FOR YOU! JOIN BY 9/12!
When you joined AmeriCorps, did people know what it was (or how to pronounce it!?)? Do you remember your first day of service and how exciting it was? You may not have realized it then, but you were a trailblazer. If you served 1994-2004, you built new pathways to opportunity for the communities you served and made it easier for the next AmeriCorps member who came after you. To honor that legacy, a group of early alums has created The Trailblazers Club to encourage the alumni who served in the first ten years of AmeriCorps to re-engage and reinvest in the next generation of alums. We’re hoping to celebrate the 21st anniversary of AmeriCorps (this September 12th!) by announcing seventy-five alums in this new initiative. We need you! Click here to join and here to learn more. We’ll also be having a Conference Call on September 8th, 12-1 p.m. EDT to share more; register today! And, if you didn’t serve 1994-2004, you can still support our work by clicking here.
