Government Shutdown Impacts Service Volunteers

"Government Shutdown Will Impact Millions of Service Volunteers", by Aine Creedon, The Nonprofit Quarterly

A recent Nonprofit Quarterly article discussed the impact of the current federal government shutdown on the AmeriCorps national service program. While our current members already in the field were not negatively impacted, we did have two additional members waiting eagerly to start throughout the government shutdown. Our example is cited in this NPQ story written by a former SCI AmeriCorps member. The two members are now happily serving!
