2013 AmeriCorps Week
AmeriCorps Week is a time to salute AmeriCorps members and alums for their service, thank AmeriCorps community partners and communicate AmeriCorps impact on communities and on the lives of those who serve. Celebrated March 9-17, this year's theme was "AmeriCorps Works" to reflect AmeriCorps triple bottom line return on investment -- for the recipients of service, the people who serve and the larger community and nation.
Kentucky AmeriCorps programs participated in various projects and events including presentations on AmeriCorps, service projects, press releases, proclamations, supply drives and recruiting volunteers for local projects. Check out photos on the KCCVS Facebook page.
