Thanks for celebrating the AmeriCorps 20th Anniversary with us!

On Friday, September 12, Oregon Volunteers hosted nearly 240 current and former AmeriCorps members, program staff, commissioners and other friends of AmeriCorps in Oregon for this celebration of twenty years of AmeriCorps service in Oregon and across the nation!

In the past twenty years, over 16,000 AmeriCorps members provided over 20 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 took this opportunity to salute these members and the dedicated staff and partners who supported them in their service.

Were you here with us or wish you could have been here?
