“The spirit of volunteerism is one of the ways our country is strong,” Governor Kay Ivey said in a press release. “The Governor’s Office of Volunteer Services provides a strong pathway and support for citizens who want to make a real difference in Alabama through serving in AmeriCorps.

According to their website, AmeriCorps engages more than 80,000 members annually, who serve at 21,000 locations across the country.

Applying for Americorp. Any tips?

I'm applying for Americorp right now. I have moderate but consistent community service experience. I volunteered at camps, art museums, and community gardens throughout high school.
