[RENO/LAS VEGAS] — Nevada is taking part in AmeriCorps Week, March 9-17, a national celebration to recognize the vital work done by AmeriCorps members in communities across the nation and in Nevada since the national service program began 19 years ago.
“We are proud of and grateful to the AmeriCorps members who are getting things done in Nevada communities,” said Shawn Lecker-Pomaville, CEO of Nevada Volunteers, the Governor’s Commission on Service which distributes approximately 2 million dollars in federal funding and is the state authority on volunteering. Believing that AmeriCorps is a powerful pathway to career opportunities, Nevada Volunteers wanted to record testimonies directly from AmeriCorps members. The video, “Everyone Can Serve,” highlights the benefits of AmeriCorps and how to get involved. To view the video, click here.
“It’s pretty humbling when you’re doing work that is bigger than yourself. You’re having a greater impact and you realize just how small we are but how big of an impact we can have in our natural world,” said Nic Brancato, Nevada Conservation AmeriCorps member through the Great Basin Institute.
Governor Brian Sandoval joined Nevada Volunteers in recognizing AmeriCorps Week by proclaiming March 9-17 AmeriCorps Week in Nevada. To view the Governor’s proclamation, click here.
AmeriCorps members typically remain actively engaged in their communities long after their service is complete. An AmeriCorps longitudinal study found that AmeriCorps alums are more attached to their communities, aware of community challenges, and significantly more likely to go into public service careers.
