Gearing up for AmeriCorps Week!

Next week, March 9th-13th, is the annual AmeriCorps Week. During this week, AmeriCorps members and alum, as well as AmeriCorps community partners and organizations, are recognized for their commitment and service to their local communities.

AmeriCorps was founded in 1994. Since then, there have been more than 900,000 AmeriCorps members serving more than 1.2 billion hours in service across the nation. The Sierra Nevada AmeriCorps Partnership (SNAP) program is now in its ninth year, and places 27 AmeriCorps members throughout the greater Sierra Nevada range, including our own Conservation Associate, Jake!

To celebrate AmeriCorps Week, on Tuesday, March 10th from noon-1pm, Jake will be planning a brown-bag seminar on the AmeriCorps and SNAP programs, as well as his journey and experiences from Wisconsin to California. Jake will also be doing some trail work next Thursday morning, March 12th. Please RSVP to to either or both events if you are interested!
