THE BEGINNING OF EVERYTHING
AmeriCorps Alums' National Advisory Council Members in Attendance at 2015 AmeriCorps Alums Leadership Forum

Dear Alum,

When people ask where we grew up, we say “AmeriCorps.” The experiences we had in AmeriCorps, and the people we met, helped define who we are. The end of our first year of service was really the beginning of everything. And we think you know what we mean …. That’s why this June we’re asking you to join us in celebrating AmeriCorps Graduation: that defining moment when you finished your term of service, became an alum, and launched “what’s next."

Below, we share ways to get involved in this celebration, including a customizable AmeriCorps diploma and a guide to how to host a graduation event. We’re also excited to share new resources with you – whether you finished your term of service in ’05 or ’15. For example, today, is the first day to register for the 2015 AmeriCorps Alums Virtual Career Fair on June 30 which will bring together recruiters from public, private, and nonprofit employers who are actively seeking AmeriCorps alumni to fill open roles. Click here to sign up for the fair or share it with a graduating AmeriCorps member. If you think your company could benefit from having an alum on staff, click here to sign up for a booth.

Celebrate your year of service and beyond with Alums! #YSAB (Year of Service and Beyond). Read more below and stay tuned throughout the month for more resources and tributes to graduating Corps members and alums!

In service,

Ben and Mary

Did AmeriCorps change your life or jumpstart your career? Don’t keep it a secret! As we celebrate the newest alums, encourage them to self-identify as an alum by telling the world you served too. And by world, we mean every one of your social media followers who is catching up on where you’re checked in for dinner and what you think about the latest trends. Add AmeriCorps to your Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, and other social media profiles. Share with your colleagues and boss that you served in AmeriCorps. Visit our graduation page, to download, customize, and print an AmeriCorps diploma to hang in your office. Then, take a selfie with your certificate and share it with us on social media using #AmeriGrad and #YSAB!

As part of our celebration of AmeriCorps graduation season, we’re introducing a new member benefit to help you continue your year of service and beyond. AmeriCorps Alums has partnered with BoardSource, a national nonprofit dedicated to advancing the public good by building exceptional nonprofit boards and inspiring board service, to encourage more alums to seek leadership roles on boards – a powerful way to serve. Through this partnership, AmeriCorps Alums members will be able to find board service opportunities and secure a 15% discount on a standard BoardSource organizational membership for nonprofits where they serve or work. AmeriCorps alum and Board Source’s Training Director, Andy Davis, shares, “The nonprofit sector is looking to us—those who have already shown that we care about our communities—to step up once again.” Click here to read more about this member benefit, and you can read more on our blog about why Andy thinks we need more alums on boards.
