Mayors Day of Recognition of National Service

In April, 2013, the first-ever Mayors Day of Recognition for National Service united Mayors across the country to spotlight the impact of national service and honor those who serve. 832 Mayors in all 50 states and the District of Columbia, Guam, and Puerto Rico officially recognized the impact that AmeriCorps members serving in AmeriCorps*State and National, Volunteers in Service to America (VISTA), and the National Civilian Community Corps (NCCC); as well as the Senior Corps volunteers serving in Foster Grandparent Programs, Senior Companion Programs, and Retired and Senior Volunteer Programs, are doing to make cities better and stronger. Together, these Mayors represent nearly 100 million citizens, or nearly one-third of all Americans.

This year, the Mayors Day of Recognition for National Service will take place on Tuesday, April 1, 2014. The goal is to highlight the impact of AmeriCorps, Senior Corps, and other national service programs in tackling local problems and managing volunteers for greater impact, and to thank national service members for their commitment.

Given your support of national service, we are reaching out to see if you could sign on as a participating mayor.
