Make a Difference. Choose AmeriCorps.

Greetings AmeriCorps friends and champions,   
Thank you for celebrating AmeriCorps members and AmeriCorps Seniors volunteers with us during AmeriCorps Week. It was a pleasure to visit program sites in person throughout the week and meet some of you on the road. To keep the celebrations going, I am thrilled to share the agency’s new public service announcement, Choose AmeriCorps.
Every day, more than 200,000 AmeriCorps members and AmeriCorps Seniors volunteers from all walks of life choose to create lasting change in communities by addressing local challenges with local solutions. From supporting public health, education, and disaster recovery needs to helping restore public lands, advance racial equity, and assist elders with independent living, AmeriCorps members and AmeriCorps Seniors volunteers foster connection, build unity, and strengthen our nation’s democracy.  
I invite you to share our new public service announcement and encourage more Americans to follow in their footsteps to choose their future by serving with AmeriCorps. Working hand in hand with state, local, and tribal partners, AmeriCorps will continue to make service an indispensable part of the American experience. Thank you for all you do to elevate our mission. 
In service,
Michael D. Smith
CEO, AmeriCorps

Share the Choose AmeriCorps PSA

Choose AmeriCorps PSA
Today, AmeriCorps launched a new campaign, "Choose AmeriCorps," designed to build awareness of AmeriCorps and boost member and volunteer recruitment. Service allows Americans to turn their determination, compassion, and creativity into practical solutions for neighbors and strangers, alike. Whether they have recently graduated, have had a job or two, or have retired from a long career, anyone can serve with AmeriCorps or AmeriCorps Seniors. Share our public service announcement on your Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and LinkedIn channels.
