AmeriCorps National Direct FY 2011 (Continuation)
HandsOn Network's HandsOn Corps AmeriCorps program engages National Direct members in service to mobilize local communities around critical issues and challenges in the areas of Education, Economy, Emergency Preparedness and the Environment. AmeriCorps members identify, train, and manage service leaders who will then develop and manage impact-driven projects, engaging others and further enabling the critical work of grassroots nonprofit organizations. The HandsOn Corps model creates a vital infrastructure and brings more skilled leaders into service of our communities.
