Featured story

AmeriCorps made it possible for me to pursue my passion: environmental conservation. It provided me with the hands-on experience that I needed to advance in the field.

Valerie worked to support efforts to create language materials at the Laguna Public Library, engage tribal members to develop the Laguna collection, and expand collaborative relationships with community organizations.


Valerie Fernando

AmeriCorps member

Coming off of 5 years of prison AmeriCorps was the only interview I sat in that I did not feel judged. I did not have much of a resume but I knew deep down inside of me I can and will be an asset to my community.


Wayne Rucker

AmeriCorps alumnus

“My experience with AmeriCorps reinvigorated my believe that we need to do more to ensure that every child in America receives a high quality education.”


Patrick Heaney

AmeriCorps alumnus

“After immigrating to the United States, I was blessed to have teachers that cared enough about my learning to make it a priority. Their selfless efforts enabled me to succeed. Today, I help provide a quality education for students just like myself.”


Pamela Cassell

AmeriCorps member

“The hours I spent with that young girl provided me more fulfillment than any paid work I have done. When I found out Reading Partners was seeking new AmeriCorps members for the following school year, I applied right then.”


Perry McAlister

AmeriCorps member

“I consider it an honor to be part of such a wonderful program. I will forever be indebted to the people I have met along the way.”
