Description: This video highlights different ways that AmeriCorps Members change their communities through service. There is a special emphasis on using one's hands--using the "tools" that one is already equipped with--to serve. Some may feel inadequate and unprepared, but "getting things done" as an AmeriCorps member simply requires a head, heart, and set of hands ready to serve.
