2008 National AmeriCorps Week
What is it?
AmeriCorps Week is a recruitment and recognition event designed to bring more Americans into service, salute AmeriCorps members and alums for their powerful impact, and thank the community partners who make AmeriCorps possible.   AmeriCorps Week provides an opportunity for AmeriCorps members, alums, grantees, program partners, and friends to shine a spotlight on the work done by members in communities across the country—and to motivate more Americans to join AmeriCorps or volunteer in their communities.

AmeriCorps Presentation Kit

A great way to participate in AmeriCorps Week is to talk about your AmeriCorps experience to a school or community group. People love hearing about AmeriCorps, and who better to tell them about it than YOU! To make the process as fun, as easy, and as stress-free as possible, we've put together a free AmeriCorps Presentation Kit that includes:
Tips on speaking to groups
Facts and figures on AmeriCorps
A DVD with a PowerPoint slideshow on AmeriCorps and a video of AmeriCorps members in action
Fun handouts, such as stickers, bookmarks, and posters that you may choose to hand out at your talk



Register Your Activity or Event

Take a minute to let us know about your AmeriCorps Week project, event, or presentation. We'll get a truer sense of the scope of activities taking place May 11-18, and the many friends of AmeriCorps across the country can more easily find—and support—activities taking place near them. You can also use the site to share your AmeriCorps presentation with others, add photos, or create your own webpage to advertise your activity.  Register today at
