Professional Development & Advocacy
On Tuesday, March 7, Service Year Alliance Regional Director Laura Thompson joined us to share some news about how we can join the Service Year movement to fight to save national service through powerful storytelling. Inspired, we put together a #LetUsServe Pizza Party to write letters to our representatives, which were then hand-delivered by a Connecticut AmeriCorps alumni delegation led by the amazing Claudine Fox!
Mid-week, we crashed PAVE New Haven's social event at BAR - where we ate pizza (#poweredbypizza) with current members and alumni from across the state.
Service: Homes for the Brave
We ended AmeriCorps Week by cooking tacos for the men served by Homes for the Brave and the women served by Female Soldiers: Forgotten Heroes in Bridgeport. Thank you to Homes for the Brave for letting us invade your kitchen and to all the alumni and members who spent their Sunday with us. Definitely one of our favorite and most meaningful service projects - hope to see you next year!
