Mayor and County Day of Recognition for National Service
April 5, 2016
The nation's mayors and county officials are increasingly turning to national service as a cost-effective strategy to addroess local challenges. By unleashing the power of citizens, AmeriCorps and Senior Corps programs have a positive and lasting impact - making our cities and counties better places to live. To spotlight the impact of national service and those those show serve, mayors and county officials will participate in the fourth-annual Mayor and County Recognition Day for National Service on April 5, 2016.
On this day, mayors and county officials will hold public events and use traditional and social media to highlight the value of national service to the nation's cities and counties. Last year, 2,786 elected officials representing more than 150 million citizens participated in the third-annual Mayor and County Recogniaiton Day for National Services. The initiativbe is being led by the National League of Cities, National Association of Counties, Cities of Service, and the Corpiration for National and Community Service.
