In a few short hours at the White House, the President will announce an historic initiative called Employers of National Service. This new cross-sector partnership encourages employers from all sectors to create recruitment, hiring, and advancement opportunities for alumni of AmeriCorps and the Peace Corps. You can watch the announcement live at 11:15 AM EDT [http://www.whitehouse.gov/live].
This is an incredible victory for the AmeriCorps Alums community. Our organization has been working towards this initiative for over two years. We are thankful for the leadership of the President, the Charter members of this initiative, and our partners at CNCS, the Franklin Project of the Aspen Institute, and the Peace Corps.
We have consistently maintained that having AmeriCorps on your resume matters.Your service mattered. And we are thrilled to be part of a new movement to connect our nation's top talent to jobs in the nonprofit, private, and public sectors.Click here for more details, including a list of the 25 Charter members in this initiative.
Please share this good news with the AmeriCorps alums in your network - and encourage them to join our movement that is connecting all alums to the people, ideas, and resources that support their commitment to a lifetime of service.
