OUR TIME DAILY TRANSLATION
We've heard you say it many times: "Politics is like a foreign language." Well, we agree.
Each week, we summarize, simplify, and interpret different major news stories and how they affect our generation. We'll give you our take, and you can decide for yourself.
AmeriCorps engages more than 80,000 men and women in intensive service each year through more than 15,000 nonprofits, schools, public agencies, and community and faith-based groups across the country.
More than 750,000 AmeriCorps members have served since 1994, and many are now taking on leadership roles at nonprofits or creating unique start-ups to meet community needs.
WHY WE CARE
Considering the state of the economy, we need to create more opportunities for service like those of AmeriCorps so that we can continue to foster the social entrepreneurs of tomorrow.
AmeriCorps has proven to be an excellent incubator for young leaders and entrepreneurs. We need to expand funding to AmeriCorps & similar youth service programs.
