Meet our New AmeriCorps Members

Some of the AmeriCorps Members

As the school year began for most students, our 20 AmeriCorps members began their service year. Our members began in early September with a training week, where they all met and discussed their ideas on what they would want to accomplish in their new communities.

Now over two months into their service year, our members met up again in November to talk about their progress. Many of them have helped organize events in their communities, start up Youth Councils, and become more engaged with the community members. They are already having some significant impact- stay tuned for details!

It is safe to say, this group of AmeriCorps members are already starting to build social capital among their Massachusetts communities. We cannot wait to see the journey their service year brings them and what lasting impacts they will have on their communities.
