Celebrate AmeriCorps Week
March 5 - 12
Happy AmeriCorps Week!
This week, we are celebrating the work of AmeriCorps in communities across the nation.
Specific to our Sacramento region, United Way California Capital Region acts as the intermediary site by partnering with other nonprofits to place AmeriCorps VISTA members in various sites. AmeriCorps Volunteers in Service to America (VISTA) serve a one-year term in underserved communities to fight poverty by building capacity. Currently, United Way has 14 active VISTAs serving throughout the region. They are hard at work, helping in different capacities in the areas of food insecurity, homelessness, heath, education, and financial stability.
