    Today, 832 mayors from big cities to small towns and everything in between are participating in the Mayors Day of Recognition for National Service. What a great way to highlight the many ways that AmeriCorps members and Senior Corps volunteers demonstrate the power that every citizen has to make a difference.Together, these mayors represent nearly 100 million citizens or one-third of Americans.

    Community leader and labor activist Cesar Chavez once said that, “If you really want to make a friend, go to someone's house and eat with him ... The people who give you their food give you their heart."As he led the charge on behalf of farmworkers, in a simplified way, the food grown and harvested in our nation's fields and farms was at the root of his work.

    Whenever and wherever disasters strike, destruction and confusion trail in their wake. AmeriCorps and national service members trained in disaster response are proving to be a valuable and cost-efficient resource for America as they help victims and survivors begin to rebuild their lives.

    During AmeriCorps Week, many officials will step forward to recognize the contributions our members are making in their communities and states from coast to coast. We've collected a few highlights from the leaders of our statehouses across the nation.

    For many AmeriCorps members, finishing a term of service is not an ending, but the beginning of a life dedicated to public service and improving the lives of others.More than 800,000 people – a number close to the population of San Francisco – have served in AmeriCorps since its inception in 1994. You don't have to look far to find achievements that highlight how AmeriCorps alumni have leveraged national service experience to become leaders in fields such as education, science, community development, and the private sector.
