When National Service Recognition Day launched in 2013, over 800 mayors recognized the positive impact of AmeriCorps members and Senior Corps volunteers in their communities. Since then, thousands of local leaders including city council members, county commissioners, tribal leaders, and state legislators, have joined in support.

Formerly “Mayor’s Day,” this day has grown to encompass a larger array of elected officials and local leaders. On April 4th, 2017, more than 4,520 officials – representing more than 194 million Americans – participated in the fifth-annual National Service Recognition Day. Through recognition events, proclamations, social media, and more, leaders across the country showed their support for national service.
