The Bright Side – AmeriCorps

AmeriCorps is the newest episode of The Bright Side. If this is the first time you have heard of the AmeriCorps program, take four minutes to watch the About AmeriCorps feature video. It’s worth it. Each AmeriCorps dedicates a year to serving a local community in a critical way – whether teaching English, tutoring children, reducing crime or helping people keep their homes. For many AmeriCorps members, this is a life changing experience.
