Executive Summary

The Campus YMCA's of the USA proposes to launch an AmeriCorps project serving campuses and the community they serve across the United States. This project will help to increase capacity for our twenty-one Campus YMCA's to serve not only the students at each campus but the surrounding community as well. 12 AmeriCorps members and over 1,000 leveraged volunteers will provide assistance in volunteer recruitment and retention, community development and resource development.

Under the performance measure of capacity building, members will work on developing volunteer recruitment and retention practices. Research shows that volunteer development can impact an organization in many ways. Whether it is a student volunteering or a volunteer working with a student, the impact on each individual is significant. Members will also work on developing community partnerships that will help create and sustain programs that will meet our mission to develop cause -driven leaders while connecting campus to community. Finally, members will work on resource development. It is important that in order to sustain volunteer programs as well as community partnership s we need to develop our resources. These programs will start September 2013 and end August 2014.
