Celebrating transformed lives that were #MadeInAmeriCorps
This event recognizes the organizations and individuals that make national service possible in thousands of locations across Texas and is a wonderful opportunity to share stories of impact and success with new audiences. AmeriCorps Week is celebrated the second week of March.
Engaging local leaders to honor AmeriCorps service
National Service Recognition Day is a nationwide bipartisan effort to recognize the positive impact of national service, to thank those who serve, and to encourage more citizens to give back to their communities. Hundreds of local leaders in Texas use this opportunity to honor AmeriCorps members and AmeriCorps Seniors volunteers by participating in recognition events, issuing official proclamations, and taking to social media in a nationwide show of appreciation. AmeriCorps Texas programs spearhead local efforts and coordinate creative engagement opportunities tailored to your community. National Service Recognition Day is typically celebrated the first Tuesday in April.
Commemorating 25 years of national service
For 25 years, AmeriCorps has engaged individuals in intensive service at nonprofits, schools, public agencies, and community and faith-based groups across Texas. In 2019, OneStar commemorated the AmeriCorps 25th Anniversary with lively events that reflected the exciting and celebratory spirit of this momentous occasion.
These events provided us with a valuable opportunity to look back at the extraordinary accomplishments of AmeriCorps members over the past 25 years, and to look forward by welcoming a new class that will be carrying on the enduring legacy of national service in the coming year. We are so grateful to everyone who joined us in recognizing this special milestone!
