The two main goals for AmeriCorps Week 2013 will include:
- Connect AmeriCorps members and alums with each other so they feel they are a part of a nationwide effort.
- Communicate AmeriCorps’ powerful impact on critical problems and on the lives of its members and alums.
The theme of AmeriCorps Week 2013, AmeriCorps Works, communicates the value and effectiveness of AmeriCorps while providing flexibility to be used in many different con-texts. It provides an overarching framework to communicate AmeriCorps triple bottom line return on investment — for the recipients of service, the people who serve, and the larger community and nation.
Everyday across the nation AmeriCorps members are tackling America’s toughest prob-lems in:
- Disaster Services
- Economic Opportunity
- Environmental Stewardship
- Healthy Futures
