AmeriCorps Works Photo Project

 Calling all Maine AmeriCorps Alums! We need your help to show the impact of AmeriCorps programs in Maine communities and your life.

To participate, please download and print the above image. Then take a picture of you showing how “AmeriCorps Works” for you. Show us something you completed in your term of service, where you work now, or any other way that AmeriCorps changed your life or community.

Email the photos to kate.mccarty@americorpsalums.org. The pictures will be displayed online during AmeriCorps Week  (March 10-18th) and will show how AmeriCorps works and gets things done!

“AmeriCorps Works!”

As part of National AmeriCorps Week, AmeriCorps Alums is launching the “AmeriCorps Works” photo project!

In “AmeriCorps Works,” photographer Greta Rybus showcases the impact of national service program AmeriCorps in Maine. AmeriCorps Alumni are featured showing how AmeriCorps has worked for them, from uniting couples to advancing careers to finding a home in the state of Maine. Through the project, AmeriCorps Alums hopes to promote national service while highlighting the specific effects in Maine communities.

The show will be displayed at Blue in the month of March. Please join us at 650 Congress Street on Friday, March 2nd at 5:30pm for the show’s opening during the First Friday Art Walk.

If you would like to participate in the project remotely, please email kate.mccarty@americorpsalums.org for details. We would love to see the power of national service in Maine represented. Thanks!
