For more than two decades, AmeriCorps members have helped make our nation stronger, safer, and healthier. Dedicated citizens like you are tackling tough challenges – helping kids read proficiently by the end of 3rd grade, making neighborhoods safer, caring for seniors, supporting food deserts, and much more.
We have seen your impact first-hand, and are grateful for your dedication and sacrifice. Every week: Literacy Lab tutors teach elementary school students how to read, City Year members provide support to middle and high school students to help them stay on track to graduate, VISTA members provide capacity building support to nonprofits, NCCC members revitalize neighborhoods, and many others make a difference in the lives of people in our community.
We recognize the powerful impact AmeriCorps members and alumni have in Kansas City and communities across the nation. Through AmeriCorps, we see the very best of the American spirit – people turning towards problems instead of away, uniting to find community solutions. And for that we say thank you and you have our support.
