We are proud to announce the winners of the AmeriCorps Alums AmeriCorps Week Grant campaign! We had a record number of applications this year and are thrilled to see the growth in AmeriCorps Alums and interest in AmeriCorps Week. All of the applications we received were great. They showed all of the creativity, diversity, and dedication to service that we’d expect from an AmeriCorps Alums. There were, however, 10 projects that stood above the rest. Without further adieu, the 2011 AmeriCorps Week grant recipients are:
- Des Moines
- St. Louis
- New Hampshire
- San Francisco
Congrats to these 10 AmeriCorps Alumni Chapters. Their projects include park clean ups, tree plantings, city rallies, volunteer fairs, recruiting fairs at local schools, Alumni mixer events, and other creative ways to celebrate AmeriCorps Week while providing Alums a chance to represent AmeriCorps in their communities through word and action.Don’t forget to see what you can do for AmeriCorps Week!
