On Friday, Nov. 8 more than 65 AmeriCorps Alums got together to celebrate AmeriCorps Opening Day in MA by gathering for a happy hour at Lir.
Our board chairs Moira Mannix and Chris Bentson had the privilege of speaking at the Opening Day ceremony earlier in the day, where more than 1,000 currently serving AmeriCorps members took the AmeriCorps pledge.
As a community, we were excited to get together with AmeriCorps alums who have served all over the country in many different programs including (but certainly not limited to) City Year, Teach for America, Playworks, NCCC, VISTA, and more. We had a great turnout and are really excited to expand our network (and our impact) in Boston this year.
Special thank you to Lir for offering us their upstairs space for the second year in a row!
