Celebrating Service!


April 1, 2014, was the 2nd Annual Mayors Day of Recognition for National Service! This year 1760 mayors participated in recognizing and honoring AmeriCorps, VISTA and Senior Corps members and the positive impact they have on local communities every day. This is over twice as many who participated last year and together the mayors represent over 110 million Americans in all 50 states, the District of Columbia, Guam and Puerto Rico. 

A special thanks to all of the mayors and public officials in the Northwest who took time to highlight the importance of national service.  JVC Northwest sends a special shout out of thanks to the mayors who participated in our locales of service!
