AmeriCorps Week is a celebration of AmeriCorps members — former and current — and their service in communities throughout the nation.
This year, AmeriCorps Week will take place from Sunday, March 30 – Saturday, April 5, and incorporate numerous events designed to raise public awareness of the work done by the thousands of AmeriCorps members throughout the Greater Philadelphia area as well as acknowledge the enthusiasm and dedication of these corps members.
During the year of 2012-13 over 4,000 corps members served 22,000 citizens in the state of Pennsylvania. These are people of all ages who have given a year of their lives to serve in schools, non-profits, and city agencies throughout Philadelphia, helping our communities to grow and improve.
