Thankful for AmeriCorps Alums

November 21, 2012

Happy Thanksgiving Alums! We are incredibly thankful for all that Alums across the country have accomplished in their commitment to a Lifetime of Service. From serving in afterschool programs to hosting community forums to organizing professional networking events, Alums have continued to stay engaged in service and their communities.

Here’s a short list of some of what we’re thankful for this year:

Thanks for having served over one billion hours.

Thanks to the 775,000 Americans who served one or more national service terms towards the betterment of our country.

Thanks to our 60+ chapters and chapter leaders who are convening local alumni to serve their communities.

Most recently, we’re thankful for Alums, like AmeriCorps Alums North Texas President Lisa Tatum, who stepped up to serve in the Sandy disaster relief efforts.

Last, but not least, thank YOU for continuing to support the work that we do here at the national office and showing the country how AmeriCorps Works! 

In 2013, we hope to continue supporting the leadership growth of our Alums. Consider Donating to AmeriCorps Alums as we look to provide more professional development offerings and trainings for our members. We believe that the alumni of AmeriCorps service represent the pipeline of 21st Century Leaders and we want to continue to build that through your donations. Any amount is welcomed and we’re thankful for your support.
