Share your AmeriCorps Service Impact! (Optional)

We look forward to seeing you at the 2017 AmeriCorps State and National Grantee Symposium in September. As part of our event preparation, we are pulling together a variety of slideshows and visuals to share, and we need your help…

Engage your colleagues – via creation of an AmeriCorps Impact E-Poster - by visually representing how your AmeriCorps programs are impacting your community!

All submitted and approved AmeriCorps Impact E-Posters will be compiled and displayed throughout the Symposium and shared with colleagues and partners around the country. This is a great opportunity to showcase your work and help spark new ideas and conversation!

What Is an E-Poster?

An E-Poster (Electronic Poster) is a concept that utilizes a TV monitor and computer to display multimedia versions of a poster (traditional paper/printed poster). It gives individuals an opportunity to more effectively convey information that might not \ be possible with a traditional printed poster. It also enhances visualization to attract interest of attendees.

AmeriCorps Impact E-Posters:

Visually display the impact of your AmeriCorps programs in the communities they serve. Be creative! The area of impact you choose to highlight is up to you! Here are a few examples:  

  • Impact of AmeriCorps State and National  in your community
  • Rural community outreach
  • Unique program design
  • Marketing and outreach
  • Community impact (partnership/s)
  • AmeriCorps member motivation/recruitment
  • Diversity and inclusion
  • Evidence informed service

Note: State commissions may consider impact across the state.
