Kentucky AmeriCorps 20th Anniversary Rally
Friday, September 12, 2014 from 11:00 AM to 12:30 PM (EDT)
Every day in communities across Kentucky, AmeriCorps members are making a powerful impact on the most critical issues facing our communities. Whether improving schools, fighting poverty, rebuilding after disasters, providing health services, preserving the environment, or supporting veterans and military families, AmeriCorps members get things done.
On September 12, 2014, the nation will mark the 20th anniversary of AmeriCorps with a simultaneous, nationwide swearing-in ceremony of the next class of AmeriCorps members. This is being coordinated by the Corporation for National and Community Service (CNCS).
As part of this national event, the Kentucky Commission on Community Volunteerism and Service (KCCVS) is hosting a statewide celebration and swearing-in at 11 a.m. Eastern Time on Friday, September 12, 2014 at the KFC Yum! Center plaza in downtown Louisville.
We expect more than 500 AmeriCorps members, alums, nonprofit leaders, corporate champions and other partners to attend. We would be honored if you could join us for this historic occasion as we celebrate the extraordinary impact of AmeriCorps over the last 20 years and welcome in a new class of AmeriCorps members as they embark on their year of service
The bipartisan KCCVS manages Kentucky’s AmeriCorps national service programs. Since AmeriCorps began in 1994, more than 9,400 Kentucky residents have served more than 14 million hours.
