AmeriCorps members tackle pressing challenges within our communities like ensuring that children succeed in school and helping survivors of domestic violence find safety.
We closed out 2020 with an exciting new fund dedicated to supporting AmeriCorps members’ essential needs. Thanks to our generous donors, we provided $70 in food or fuel assistance to 138 members from 10 AmeriCorps programs across NH this spring!
We are just getting started with this fund and have so many ideas for providing meaningful assistance to local AmeriCorps members.
Will you support the AmeriCorps Essential Needs Fund this summer?
Session recordings are now available for viewing!
Did you miss out on attending the (virtual) conference? That’s okay! All session recordings are now publicly available on our website. It’s not too late to view the 18 action-oriented sessions with topics ranging from volunteer management to professional development to diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI).
P.S. Share feedback to help us host an even better conference in 2022!
Volunteer NH envisions our state as a place where people volunteer together to build strong and connected communities.
