Congressman Adam Smith released the following statement in recognition of the 20th Anniversary of AmeriCorps:

“Tomorrow we recognize the 20th Anniversary of AmeriCorps and the 80,000 members that help fight to expand educational and economic opportunities for our nation’s most vulnerable people.
 
“In Washington’s 9th Congressional District  AmeriCorps members work in schools across all levels of education, Boys and Girls Clubs, Habitat for Humanity, the American Red Cross, and many more valuable service organizations.  They help teach and mentor students, support veterans transitioning into civilian life, and protect our environment by restoring habitats and promoting clean energy.  In the process, members get tremendous leadership experience for their future careers.
 
“I look forward to hearing about AmeriCorps future progress and success for the years to come.”
