The White House budget proposal for fiscal year 2018 calls for the elimination of the Corporation for National and Community Service, which would include ending national service programs like AmeriCorps and Senior Corps. Points of Light and Voices for National Service are partnering on a social media campaign to help supporters of national service take action and make their voices heard – calling on Congress and the White House to invest in, not eliminate, this vital American resource. Add your voice.

During AmeriCorps Week, we celebrate the service of 80,000 AmeriCorps members currently serving communities across the nation, and the service of more than 1 million AmeriCorps alums. As part of this celebration, Points of Light has recognized five outstanding AmeriCorps members who are serving or have served in our programs – each one receiving a Daily Point of Light Award in honor of the impact they’ve made on the communities they serve.

In celebration of AmeriCorps Week 2017 (March 4-11), we are recognizing the impact of AmeriCorps across America. AmeriCorps Week is a time to salute AmeriCorps members and alums for their service, thank AmeriCorps community partners, and share stories about the impact of AmeriCorps on communities and on the lives of those who serve.

No, this is not a story about how I met my husband through AmeriCorps. This is a story about how AmeriCorps taught my husband and me to serve each other in marriage. Furthermore, it is about how making service a priority in our home has challenged us to be better stewards to our family, friends and community.
