Virtual Engagement? Tell Us What Our Next Move Should Be!

December 18, 2013

After the recent success of the AmeriCorps Alums Virtual Grad School Fair, we started thinking about other ways to engage alumni through the AmeriCorps Alums virtual platform.  AmeriCorps Alums wants to hear about the most useful way we can engage you through our virtual platform.  Please take a brief moment to

In case you were wondering how the AmeriCorps Alums Virtual Grad School Fair went, we think it was a success! 15 school partners and nearly 1,500 AmeriCorps Alums and current members registered for last Thursday’s AmeriCorps Alums Virtual Grad School Fair!  The event ushered in a new phase in how seamlessly you can connect with schools committed to national service.   The event helped to put alumni in direct contact with schools who provide financial incentives to AmeriCorps Alums, all without you having to leave your desk.  Many of you provided your feedback through our anonymous feedback tool, and shared what you liked and what could have improved the event.  One alum shared, “It forced me to be serious about my grad school plans and held me accountable.”  Several of you commented about the need for more schools, and we hear you loud and clear. We’ll be working hard to expand the amount of participating schools at the next version of the grad school fair.

    AmeriCorps Alums should look into establishing a Peer-Teaching platform (a free version of SkillShare.com). If each Alum filmed four 15-minute videos on a single topics, we would have thousands of hours of trainings in hundreds of different fields! Not only would this illustrate AmeriCorps Alums’ dedication to professional development, but it would also showcase the skills of Alums in specific areas of knowledge.

    Thanks for the comment Gordon. That’s a good idea that a lot of alumni could benefit from.
