Join YNPN-TC later this month for a volunteer and member appreciation event at the Minneapolis Institute of Arts.

 

What's in store for members and volunteers?

The night includes a brief dating-style skit about the different committees that make up YNPN-TC and then a scavenger hunt throughout the MIA. We’ll conclude the night with a brief, but special, volunteer recognition presentation in honor of April's National Volunteer Week.

You don't have to be a current volunteer to join us for this event! Whether you're a member, a current or past volunteer, a member who is interested in volunteering, or you're just a huge fan of scavenger hunts - we hope you can join us for this very fun event!

Registration and networking will open at 5:30, and the event will begin at 6.

Date: Thursday, April 24, 2014

Time: 5:30 PM - 8 PM

Location: Minneapolis Institute of Arts, 2400 3rd Ave S, Minneapolis, 55404

Hi all!  I will be hosting our very FIRST Civic Reflection Event at the end of this month!!

This is totally optional, but it is a great opportunity to interact with each other and have some time to reflect on your service.

Sign up below if you would like to be my first group.  Space will be limited so, sign up soon!  This will all be done online, but you do need a webcam and a microphone (both are usually built into your computer these days).

April 30th at 1pm - 2pm (EST)

Send me a message if you have any questions about this event or would like to suggest a time for next month.

April is Environmental Stewardship Month!!!

Promoting Environmental Stewardship: Every day, our national service members help improve ecosystems, support conservation activities, and increase energy and water efficiency. As part of our yearlong celebration of the 20th anniversary of AmeriCorps, we will use the month of April to highlight the important contributions that our members make to protecting and improving the environment.

The second annual Mayors Day of Recognition for National Service is on Tuesday! More than 1,750 mayors and city leaders across the country will visit service sites, host roundtables, and issue proclamations. All events focus on the three groups that benefit from national service: the recipients of service, the people who serve, and the larger community and nation.

You can help send the message that national service works! Here's what to do:

  1. Check out the full list of participating mayors.
  2. Thank your mayor for supporting AmeriCorps! Post on Facebook or Twitter using the hashtag #mayors4service.
