Background

The Corporation for National and Community Service improves lives, strengthens communities, and fosters civic engagement through service and volunteering.

Each year, the Corporation provides opportunities for more than four million Americans of all ages and backgrounds to serve their communities and country through SeniorCorps, AmeriCorps, VISTA, NCCC, and Learn and Serve America.

AmeriCorps engages 85,000 Americans each year in intensive service to meet community needs in education, the environment, public health and safety, and other areas. For more information, visit www.NationalService.gov and www.AmeriCorps.gov.

The AmeriCorps Getting Things Done Video and Photo Contest is part of AmeriCorps Week, a national recruitment and recognition event designed to bring more Americans into service, salute AmeriCorps members and alums for their powerful impact, and thank community partners who make AmeriCorps possible.

This year's AmeriCorps Week is May 8-15, 2010. For more information, visit www.AmeriCorpsWeek.org.
