May 14, 2008, Washington D.C. – At a Brookings Institution forum yesterday, CEOs of some of America’s largest voluntary organizations, Members of Congress, and experts on the nonprofit workforce hailed AmeriCorps as a critical pipeline for public service that can help address a looming leadership and workforce crisis.

CEOs of Boys & Girls Clubs of America, National Council of La Raza, and other national groups highlighted how AmeriCorps members not only help organizations extend their reach and impact during their terms of service but also well into the future as AmeriCorps alumni go on to become staff, volunteers, and board members.

The nonprofit leaders were reacting to a new longitudinal study about AmeriCorps that was released yesterday at the forum, which was part of the nationwide recognition of AmeriCorps Week.

Video excerpts and a full transcript of the forum are available at the Brookings website.
