Registration is now open for the Oregon AmeriCorps 20th Anniversary Celebration!

Join us on September 12th for a celebration of twenty years of AmeriCorps service in Oregon and across the nation! Oregon Volunteers will host a celebration for current and former AmeriCorps members, program staff, commissioners and other supporters of AmeriCorps in Oregon.

In the past twenty years, over 3600 AmeriCorps members provided over 5 million hours of service to enrich the educational experiences of Oregon's children, increase access to healthcare for families, provide relief to victims of disaster, preserve the environment, build the capacity of community organizations and much, much more! We salute these members and the dedicated staff and partners who supported them in their service and we hope you will join us to do the same!
