Commission AmeriCorps State Competitive Planning Grants FY 2011
The Boys & Girls Clubs Beyond Our Walls Initiative seeks to build on the strengths of both the Boys & Girls Clubs movement and the AmeriCorps program, creating a partnership that has proven to be a catalyst of change in communities across the United States. In the last five years, Boys & Girls Clubs have established highly successful state-wide AmeriCorps programs in Iowa, Indiana and Colorado. Washington Clubs seek to replicate these successful programs.
