YouthBuild USA and AmeriCorps programs around the country are joining the Corporation for National Community Service in celebrating AmeriCorps Week 2016. From March 5-12, AmeriCorps members and alumni will share stories highlighting the impact of their national service in communities nationwide.

To date, over 980,000 AmeriCorps members have served since 1994, accounting for a total of 1.38 billion hours of service hours.

Each year, thousands of YouthBuild AmeriCorps members spend 9.2 million hours building or rehabbing affordable housing and enriching lives of people in their communities.

To highlight the impact of their members, we have encouraged YouthBuild AmeriCorps programs to share stories of service.

Additionally, on March 9, YouthBuild USA will take over the Corporation for National Service’s Snapchat and Instagram accounts. We will be sharing stories from YouthBuild AmeriCorps members at YouthBuild programs and at the 2016 Conference of Young Leaders.
