AmeriCorps Week 2023 is March 12-18

During AmeriCorps Week we recognize the commitment of the millions of Americans who have chosen to serve their country through AmeriCorps and AmeriCorps Seniors, and encourage others to follow in their footsteps of service.

AmeriCorps engages 250,000 Americans each year in sustained, results-driven service through our AmeriCorps and AmeriCorps Seniors programs. These dedicated citizens help communities manage COVID-19 response, ensure students stay on track to graduate, combat hunger and homelessness, respond to natural disasters, fight the opioid epidemic, help seniors live independently, support veterans and military families, and much more. 

Join with us as we celebrate the impact of our programs and offer our thanks to members and volunteers for making an impact and serving others together

Together, we are AmeriCorps

In the news

Recognize, Promote and Engage

AmeriCorps Week is a time to salute AmeriCorps members and alumni for their service, thank AmeriCorps community partners, and communicate AmeriCorps impact on communities and on the lives of those who serve. This year, we also are inviting local elected officials – from mayors to county executives – to participate in AmeriCorps Week. Below are ways you can get involved.

Recognize and Promote

During AmeriCorps week, we invite you to say, ‘thank you’ to an AmeriCorps member or an AmeriCorps Senior volunteer.

  • Share videos, photos, and posts on social media giving #AmeriThanks to AmeriCorps members, AmeriCorps Seniors volunteers and alums throughout the month of March.

  • Host a virtual thank you celebration or reach out directly to AmeriCorps members, AmeriCorps Seniors volunteers, or alumni

  • Nominate a member, volunteer, or alumnus for a service award, such as the Harris Wofford Joint Service Award or the Presidential Volunteer Service Award

If you’re an AmeriCorps alumnus, share your service story.

  • Share videos, photos, and posts on social media about your service experience (or AmeriCorps members/AmeriCorps Seniors volunteers in your program) during AmeriCorps week and throughout the month of March.

  • Share your service story on americorps.gov.

Spread the word about AmeriCorps

  • Share videos, photos, and posts on social media about AmeriCorps throughout the week and the month of March.

  • Encourage your networks to learn more about AmeriCorps and share ways they can get involved in national service.

  • Become an Employer of National Service

  • Help AmeriCorps recruit more people to national service. Share our opportunities in your channels.

Engage

AmeriCorps Week is a great time for community leaders to spend time with national service programs and members.

  • Celebrate your members and volunteers. Take time during the week to thank your members for their service.

  • Share your impact. Through social media, op-eds, letters to the editor, or other communications channels, take a moment to highlight the impact of the work these members do, share member or alumni stories, and more.

  • Host an “honorary AmeriCorps member.” Invite an elected official, community leader, school principal, or other local dignitary to see your program in action by becoming an “honorary AmeriCorps member” or by doing a site visit.

  • State & local proclamations. Help declare March 13-19 AmeriCorps Week in your community by securing AmeriCorps Week proclamations from your city or county council, state legislature, or governors.

  • Let us know what you have planned & how we can help your efforts. Contact engagement@cns.gov or governmentrelations@cns.gov.
