2016-17 AmeriCorps State Programs

2016-17 AmeriCorps State Programs

The Virginia Office on Volunteerism and Community Services is proud to announce the 2016-17 AmeriCorps State Grantees. There are 20 programs this year located in throughout the Commonwealth focusing on community needs in education and youth, economic opportunity, environmental stewardship, disaster services, and healthy futures. Additionally, there are four Volunteer Generation Fund programs. AmeriCorps National Direct programs and NCCC teams have also been deployed for the year.

We are excited to welcome Virginia newest AmeriCorps State program, CASA, which will serve the Northern Virginia community! CASA's mission is to create a more just society by building power and improving the quality of life in low-income immigrant communities.

Programs recently gathered in Richmond for three days of intensive training and networking (see below). 2016-17 Americorps Members will take the AmeriCorps Pledge for their service year at regional events throughout Virginia on October 7. Stay tuned!

    I’m really loving the theme/design of your blog. Do you ever run into any browser compatibility problems?
    A small number of my blog audience have complained
    about my blog not operating correctly in Explorer but looks great in Firefox.

    Do you have any recommendations to help fix this issue?

      Thanks for the encouragement! Yes, we have issues with Explorer — especially older versions. We are working on a fix with our host site but I understand it is a complicated fix. This template has worked great in Chrome & Firefox though. Good luck!

    Hi there just wanted to give you a quick heads up. The text in your content seem to be running off the screen in Internet explorer. I’m not sure if this is a format issue or something to do with web browser compatibility but I thought I’d post to let you know. The layout look great though! Hope you get the problem resolved soon. Many thanks

    Hey there, I think your website might be having browser compatibility issues. When I look at your website in Safari, it looks fine but when opening in Internet Explorer, it has some overlapping. I just wanted to give you a quick heads up! Other then that, amazing blog!

    Hmm is anyone else experiencing problems with the pictures on this blog loading? I’m trying to figure out if its a problem on my end or if it’s the blog. Any feed-back would be greatly appreciated.
