Civic Works, Incorporated
Commission AmeriCorps State FY 2011
Civic Works was founded in 1993 with a mission of building a future for Baltimore's youth through community service and skills development. Our Service Corps program recruits AmeriCorps members to serve in community revitalization, education, and energy conservation projects in low and moderate income Baltimore neighborhoods. Members tutor and mentor students, involve parents in schools, convert vacant lots into green spaces, remove trash from public areas and plant trees and flowers, rehabilitate houses, promote home energy conservation, and serve with small community organizations that do not have the capacity to operate AmeriCorps programs. Every year, over 1,400 volunteers work alongside Service Corps members to complete community service projects.
