AmeriCorps Texas Grantee Meeting

Save the Date!
March 1, 2023 | Austin, TX

AmeriCorps Texas Grantee Meeting is an annual training event that brings AmeriCorps programs from across the state together to share best practices, connect with one another and OneStar staff, and receive essential training on grant and program management.

Goals:

  • Learn new strategies for growth from a programmatic, member management, fiscal, and grant administration perspective.
  • Connect virtually with their in national service and with OneStar staff.
  • Reflect on the best practices and collaborate with peers to continue delivering high quality, impactful programs to members and service recipients.

As we strive toward progress this year, in which direction are you focusing your energies? The theme of the 2022 AmeriCorps Texas Grantee Meeting is Inward > Outward > Upward, which recognizes that our service must be rooted in support and care. We can make the greatest impact by first looking inward to address issues like burnout and belonging. Affirming our own humanity helps us better understand and serve others—and ultimately elevates all Texas communities.

During these extraordinary and often overwhelming times, the 2022 AmeriCorps Texas Grantee Meeting will equip AmeriCorps program staff with strategies to support mental health and personal development, while continuing to provide training and best practices for effective program management.

Goals:

  • Learn new strategies for growth from a programmatic, member management, fiscal, and grant administration perspective.
  • Connect virtually with peers in national service and with OneStar staff.
  • Reflect on best practices and collaborate with peers to continue delivering high quality, impactful programs to members and service recipients.
