Since the launch of AmeriCorps in 1994, more than a half million Americans have served in the program and helped support local nonprofits and communities in activities across a range of issues, including education, poverty alleviation and disaster support. On May 13, the Brookings Institution and the Corporation for National and Community Service (CNCS) will host a forum with leading policy and public service experts about the role of AmeriCorps in helping to create future public service leaders. As part of the briefing, CNCS will release a new study that evaluates AmeriCorps’ long-term impact on members.
The program will feature remarks by U.S. Rep. Gwen Moore (D-Wis.) and a presentation of the new study results by Robert Grimm of CNCS. Panelists include David Eisner of CNCS; Paul Light, New York University and Brookings; Janet Murguia, Council of La Raza; and Roxanne Spillett, Boys & Girls Clubs of America. Stephen Goldsmith of CNCS will provide concluding remarks. Lael Brainard, vice president and director of Global Economy and Development will provide introductory remarks and Senior Fellow E.J. Dionne will moderate. After the program, panelists will take audience questions.
