The Americorps launch on October 23rd at the Seattle Center was a way to bring together Americorps members from across the state of Washington. There was so much diversity in the crowd, who represented many different programs including CityYear, Washington Conservation Corps, Reading Corps, and of course, our very own Volunteer Centers of Washington. It was really great to see so many people, many of whom are not even from Washington (which includes Steph and myself!) who are willing to give so much time and energy to service in the community.
