And in the blink of an eye, a year passes and we send these lovey folks off into their next adventures!
Our year was full of joys and challenges, friendships and mentors, snow storms and donated pastries.
Through it all, our AmeriCorps Members and Fellows accomplished so many amazing things. Here are some numbers to give you a taste of what the fantastic work they did:
- 135 relationships built do expand capacity
- Engaged 3,532 adults in underserved communities
- Engaged 4,687 youth in underserved schools and communities
- Engaged 1,841 volunteers in 10,480 hours of volunteering
- Planted 14,871 trees and shrubs
- 86 environmental restorations in underserved communities
- 41,346 hours served as an AmeriCorps cohort
We wrapped up our year with a back-yard celebration with a special keynote address from Confluence Alumni Xao Xiong who shared her story of vulnerability and her message of courage with all our newly graduated members.
Thank you for all of you hard work. Thank you to the supervisors and project sites for mentoring our members and giving them opportunities.
We wish you all the best of luck
