AmeriCorps is such an amazing program. Just the thought of it not being a part of the makeup of this country makes me shudder. As a second term member I can honestly say that AmeriCorps has been the most formative experience of my life. It has helped me become a valuable member of the workforce, the community in which I live and work, and the world at large.
We must fight the zero Congress has placed on the budget of AmeriCorps. We aren't looking for a bailout, just a chance to serve our country.
