Introducing ServiceWorks

ServiceWorks — powered by the Citi Foundation, AmeriCorps and Points of Light — is a groundbreaking, national program that uses volunteer service as a strategy to help 25,000 low-income youth and young adults in 10 cities develop the skills they need to prepare for college and careers.  Funded by the Citi Foundation, the program will deploy 225 AmeriCorps members over the next three years, making it the largest corporate-sponsored AmeriCorps VISTA program in the country. ServiceWorks will provide underserved young adults training in critical 21st century leadership and project management skills, the chance to build their networks and connections to community, and the opportunity to use their new skills by participating in and leading volunteer service projects. We are excited to join with the Citi Foundation and Points of Light to announce the 10 host sites chosen to execute the program. Read more about the host sites, and watch this new video explaining ServiceWorks!
