April 3rd, 2018
Please join us in thanking the Albany County Commissioners, the Laramie City Council and Mayor Summerville for proclaiming April 3rd, 2018 as National Service Recognition Day.
National Service participants address the most pressing challenges facing our communities, from educating students for the jobs of the 21st century, to fighting the opioid epidemic, to responding to natural disasters, to supporting veterans and military families. National service expands economic opportunity by creating more sustainable, resilient communities and providing education, career skills, and leadership abilities for those who serve.
AmeriCorps and Senior Corps participants serve in more than 50,000 locations across the country, bolstering the civic, neighborhood, and faith-based organizations that are so vital to our economic and social well-being. In the Laramie Valley these include:
- Wyoming Conservation Corps
- Wyoming Coalition Against Domestic Violence and Sexual Assault
- Great Wyoming Big Brother Big Sisters
- Action Resources International
- Foster Grandparents
- Southern Wyoming RSVP
- Wyoming Senior Companions
- Laramie Soup Kitchen
- Laramie Downtown Clinic
- Feeding Laramie Valley
These organizations depend of funding from the Corporation for National and Community Service (AmeriCorps), and our state commission, Serve Wyoming.
