Episode 40 — AmeriCorps and Maggie’s Place: Serving Arizona Mothers
Be a change maker with AmeriCorps. Over 7,000 AmeriCorps members serve annually to alleviate poverty by helping local organizations expand capacity to make change. AmeriCorps members support organizations making sustainable changes in areas that affect poverty, including education, public health, climate, access to benefits, and more. Activities such as fundraising, grant writing, research, and volunteer recruitment are a few of the skills members gain to elevate their professional expertise. Unmatched hands on experience, AmeriCorps members are prepared for a life of service in the public, private or non-profit sector.
Maggie’s Place welcomes pregnant and parenting women and their children into a safe and loving community, providing life-changing programs and ongoing services to help them become self-sufficient.
