Video Series: 25 Years of AmeriCorps Alums

Daphne Brookins

To celebrate the AmeriCorps 25th Anniversary, we are proud to launch a new video series featuring the inspirational stories of three AmeriCorps*Texas alums from across the decades! Although each of these former AmeriCorps members served years apart, they are united by the impact that national service has had in their lives.

In this video series, these extraordinary individuals share how the lessons and skills learned during AmeriCorps service can have a lasting effect on a person’s life and career and illustrate the enduring legacy of national service for members.

These members will be also sharing more of their stories in person during our panel at the AmeriCorps 25th Anniversary Celebration on Friday, October 4, in Austin, TX! You are encouraged to share these videos or to screen them during at your own local AmeriCorps events.
