Happy AmeriCorps Week!
AccessCal is excited to celebrate and recognize the commitment of our AmeriCorps Members by highlighting the extraordinary impact AmeriCorps makes at AccessCal every day. This year, AmeriCorps Week is from Saturday, March 5 through Saturday, March 12, 2016.
AccessCal is among a select list of organizations nationwide to hold an AmeriCorps program. We are the only organization nationwide to have an AmeriCorps program dedicated to serving the underserved communities and refugees from Middle Eastern, South Asian and Muslim-American populations.
Every day at AccessCal, AmeriCorps Members make our communities safer, stronger, healthier, and improve the lives of thousands of our most vulnerable community members.
We are so blessed to have a diverse, knowledgeable, and friendly AmeriCorps team that speaks many different languages. Our AmeriCorps members create and expand programs that facilitate and empower thousands of low-income individuals and communities through multiple services. They offer employment services, access to healthcare, tax assistance, an after school program, individual and group counseling, and much more.
If you ask our AmeriCorps members to tell you about the children they’ve taught, clients they’ve employed, or workshops they’ve provided, you won’t just hear statistical data. You’ll hear first-hand experiences about how responsibility is being encouraged, opportunities are being expanded, and how ultimately communities are being strengthened.
We are so proud to be able to work alongside each and every AmeriCorps member who serves with us at AccessCal! Go AmeriCorps!
