What You Can Do

Grantees/Sponsors/State Commissions

  • Show your pride and let others know about the work you do by hosting an “AmeriCorps Member for a Day” event. Invite local celebrities, community leaders, or elected officials to take the AmeriCorps Pledge; give them some AmeriCorps gear, and have them set out on a day of service. Be sure to capture it in action (via photo or video) and post about it on your social media account(s) so we can highlight it on ours.
  • Host a photo contest on #DayoftheA, Wednesday, March 13, to encourage AmeriCorps members throughout your state or in your program to post creative pictures of themselves showcasing the “A” on social media.
  • Ask your Governor or other elected officials to thank your members/alumni by issuing a proclamation. Share a link to the proclamation on social media.

AmeriCorps Members/Alumni

  • Use the #MadeInAmeriCorps hashtag to tell your AmeriCorps story on social media.
  • Share your program pride and take pictures of yourself and fellow members/alumni in front of your sponsor organization. On Wednesday, March 13, be sure to tag #DayoftheA and our social media accounts (listed below) in your photos so we can share them across our channels.
