21st Century Leaders Springing Up From Ranks of Alums

As the 20th anniversary of AmeriCorps approaches, we thought it would be a good time to reflect on the leadership foundation that AmeriCorps has created for many of its alumni. With over 800,000 AmeriCorps Alums, many of our fellow alumni are matriculating into positions of leadership- calling the shots for multi-million dollar organizations that are national and international in scope. Two such alumni are Delores Morton, President of Programs at Points of Light and Emily Gilliland, Executive Director at Hands On Network.  Read their stories below to hear how they have used their AmeriCorps experience as part of their professional experience.
