JV AmeriCorps Members Celebrate AmeriCorps20!


JV AmeriCorps members and program staff across Oregon, Washington, Idaho, Montana, and Alaska celebrated the AmeriCorps 20th Anniversary on September 12th, 2014. We attended local events in Olympia, Portland, and Anchorage, tuned into the President’s live address, and educated our communities about the scope of National Service.

JVC Northwest is grateful to be part of the broad scope and long-lasting legacy of national service. In the first 20 years of AmeriCorps:

  • 900,000 people have served as AmeriCorps members
  • 1.2 Billion hours have been served by AmeriCorps members
  • 4 Million community volunteers have been mobilized or managed by AmeriCorps members
  • 25,000 nonprofits and community organizations are served by AmeriCorps each year
  • $2.7 Billion in Segal Education Awards have been earned by AmeriCorps members

We look forward to all we will accomplish in the next 20 years and beyond!
