The Waynesville Daily Guide (MO)

AmeriCorps members have been serving the Waynesville and surrounding areas for nine years within the school district and various community agencies. Since its establishment in the Waynesville area, AmeriCorps members’ service has become more than a way to give back - it has become a family tradition, a connection to the community, and a brother/sisterhood of alumni. Members have met and later married, families and friends have served alongside each other, and lifelong friendships were rooted all while serving. The tradition of families serving together is prevalent in the Waynesville AmeriCorps program. The program currently has mothers serving with their children, spouses and siblings serving together, and an aunt serving with her niece.
