AmeriCorps 20th Anniversary
The Governor’s Office of Community Service is asking AmeriCorps alumni to reconnect with our office as part of a year-long celebration of the 20th Anniversary of AmeriCorps. Beginning in September 2013 and continuing for the next year, we want to find out what our alumni are doing now and recognize their commitment to service. We have exciting things planned, but we need your help to share the AmeriCorps story with Montanans.

As a pathway to economic opportunity, AmeriCorps has built community leaders that serve Montana each day. AmeriCorps will continue as a pipeline to public service while providing valuable skills and experience to keep Montana at its best.
