This month's ONE THING is to share why you served in the first ever "I Served Because..." Video Contest, launched by AmeriCorps Alums in partnership with the Save Service in America Coalition, a campaign led by Voices for National Service and ServiceNation. Watch our video below to learn more about the "I Serve Because..." Video Contest and how you can submit your story:
There’s something powerful in hearing the AmeriCorps story from the individuals who have served. It is an important time for AmeriCorps Alums to raise our voices, as decision makers in Washington make crucial decisions that could impact the future of national service. The key to the success of saving national service will be for alumni of AmeriCorps and its supporters to make our stories both seen and heard!
Tell us why you serve. Submit your video to the "I Serve Because…” Video Contest.

Join Us at the 2013 Conference on Volunteering & Service
Convened by Points of Light, the Conference on Volunteering and Service is the world’s premier event for nonprofit, government, corporate, education and faith-based organizations.
This year’s Conference, sponsored by Chase, will be held in Washington, D.C., June 19 – 22, 2013. During the Conference, we’ll explore the power of service to unite, and the values we share as citizens that are more powerful than the issues that divide us. This Conference will be about the power of service to bridge differences and bring people together to do what people the world over do best – help one another.
Alums can save $150 on a discounted registration rate for the Conference through volunteering. Learn more and register today.
