This week we are excited to celebrate National AmeriCorps Week! Did you know that the the SouthFranklinCommunity Center is run by two AmeriCorps VISTAS? AmeriCorps VISTA is the national service program dedicated to fighting poverty. VISTA (Volunteers in Service to America) members commit to serve full-time for one year at a nonprofit organization or a government agency. They do not generally provide direct service, but instead work to improve the organizational, administrative and financial capacity of organizations that fight poverty in their community.
Come by our booth at Fresh Market on University Parkway to learn more about the AmeriCorps VISTA program or take a look at www.americorps.gov Thank you to all the AmeriCorps members who are serving their community!
