Join us in June 2016 and throughout the summer to celebrate the AmeriCorps graduation season (#AmeriGrad) with the Corporation for National and Community Service and our partners!
Post on Twitter and Instagram using #AmeriGrad to appear on our brand-new #AmeriGrad Hall of Fame page. You can also directly upload to the Hall of Fame. This page will be open to share pictures of AmeriCorps grads during the summer gradation season from June 1 - September 12, 2016.
Help celebrate and connect this year's graduating class and ALL AmeriCorps graduates to the alumni network, each other, and to our career supports.
3 Ways to Get Involved with #AmeriGrad.
1. Share information about AmeriCorps Alums. Are you an AmeriCorps Alums Chapter Leader or an AmeriCorps program staff member? If so, you are often the first person a graduating Corps member might go to with questions about AmeriCorps Alums. We can help you answer them!
Click here for an "About Us" flyer, a customizable graduation certificate (for graduates of any AmeriCorps year) and more communications guides. You can also check out this webpage co-created by Alums and the Corporation for National and Community Service about the benefits of being an AmeriCorps alum.
2. Post on social media using #AmeriGrad. We'll feature Twitter and Instagram posts using #AmeriGrad on our first-ever #AmeriGrad Hall of Fame page. You'll also be able to directly upload photos to that page. Learn more at www.americorpsalums.org/AmeriGradHallofFame.
Not sure what to share? Post a selfie holding up your customized Ameri-diploma (download & create yours here!), or share your best photo from your AmeriCorps year.
3. Attend or host an event! No time to plan an event? While AmeriCorps Alums and our chapters celebrate #AmeriGrad with events in June, we recognize that graduations happen throughout the year. We're happy to help share your graduation and end-of-year events on our calendar and Twitter feed even if they fall outside of our main celebration period in June.
Any event that celebrates the graduation season, connects current members and alumni, or provides "Life after AmeriCorps" training can be an #AmeriGrad event. Click here to request we add your event to our calendar and here to view our current event calendar.
