You may have heard about it from some awesome
presenters at this yearâs Community Service Seminar.
You may have seen information about it on the
Community Service Division listserv.
You may have even seen the blog entries about it
written by fellow Federationists Serena Cucco and Conchita Hernandez.
And now we want to see your stories about it, too!
So, you are probably asking, what is âit?â
To celebrate the 20th anniversary of AmeriCorps,
the Community Service Division is seeking
articles for its blog from Federationists who
have served in any AmeriCorps program. Tell your
story! In which program did you serve? What did
you do? What alternative techniques did you use,
and how did you change perceptions? What
challenges did you face? What amazing experiences
did you have? Tell us about it!
The following questions come from an article I
read some time back; feel free to answer them in your stories as well.
1) How did your service year impact the community?
2) What skills did you gain? How did it help you move forward?
3) What was one life-changing moment for you?
The specifics: Send your story as an attachment
or in the body of a message to me at
Christine-parsons at sbcglobal.net. Stories should
be no more than 500 words. Be sure to include
your name, state, and a title for your story. I
look forward to reading about your AmeriCorps experience!
Vice President, National Federation of the Blind Community Service Division
