AmeriCorps Week 2017 is Here!

There is a lot to celebrate this year - more than 650 AmeriCorps members are currently serving and thousands more AmeriCorps Alums live and work here.

We hope to see and hear from you this week - if you can't make it to one of our events, please reach out via FacebookTwitter, or email us to share your story and get connected.

Advocacy and Professional Development
Tuesday, March 7th, Carriage House Theater (Hartford)
Presented by Northeast Regional Field Director at Service Year Alliance, Laura Thompson, "Public Narrative: The Story of Self, Us, Now," will teach you the basics of how public narrative works, review the criteria for effective story of self, and allow you to practice your own story of self (and coach others).

Attendees will also have the opportunity to put their stories on paper to write to our representatives - sharing the AmeriCorps story and reiterating the importance of continued funding.

Note for currently serving members: you are welcome to attend, however we ask that you exclude yourself from the advocacy portion of the event and talk to your program's manager or director if you have any questions.

Wednesday, March 8th, BAR (New Haven)
We are partnering with PAVE New Haven, who are hosting an AmeriCorps Gathering. All are welcome to join - please invite your friends! RSVP on Facebook or join us any time after 5:30.

Sunday, March 12th, Homes for the Braves
Join us as we prepare dinner for veterans at Homes for the Brave in honor of AmeriCorps Week! This is a great opportunity to connect with other alums and current members while cooking, and serve and connect with veterans at Homes for the Brave and Female Soldiers: Forgotten Heroes.

Please find more details and RSVP here or on Facebook so we know you're coming!
