AMERICORPS ALUMS: ORGANIZATION RELAUNCHED
With 25 chapters up and running and another 10 set to start, the newly revitalized AmeriCorps Alums are off to a good start. Program manager P.J. D’Amico, whose involvement with AmeriCorps dates from the Summer of Service in 1993, is based at the Hands On Network in Atlanta. The relationship with the Hands On Network, with its 45 affiliates across the country, provides the Alums with a strong platform for its launch, according to D’Amico. He reports that there is “a lot of energy” among state commissions and Corporation staff, as well as among alums. During the recent national conference, about 300 people signed up to get involved. The Alums website, http://www.lifetimeofservice.org, will soon include a feature allowing alums to update their own profiles. If you’re an alum, be sure to sign up – and to spread the word.
