"COVID-19 changed the way AmeriCorps Seniors volunteers operate, especially since they are a vulnerable demographic to the virus. However, that did not stop them from finding safe, creative ways to help out."

"It was a life changing experience and I consider it the best year of my life."
JoAnne Burch Burris
"AmeriCorps has given me the opportunity to serve my community for years, all the while furthering my own education and building sustainable, impactful programming for others."
My two years with AmeriCorps had a great impact on my personal and professional goals. My service with Campus Compact and Citizen Schools led me to a career path in International Development.
"I know that the road to recovery from COVID-19 will take longer in communities like mine. However, I also know that my service is going a long way to minimize the gap in education created by the crisis.”
"While my service term with AmeriCorps only lasts two years, I am proud to be one of many college advisers who have made a lasting contribution to this community.”
