AmeriCorps isn’t just one program.
It’s more like an ‘ohana (family) of programs that take different approaches to improving lives and strengthening our island communities. If you are interested in increasing academic achievement, mentoring youth, fighting poverty, sustaining our local lifestyle, or just about anything in between, AmeriCorps has a program for you!
AmeriCorps members take the following pledge:
I will get things done for America – to make our people safer, smarter, and healthier.
I will bring Americans together to strengthen our communities.
Faced with apathy, I will take action.
Faced with conflict, I will seek common ground.
Faced with adversity, I will persevere.
I will carry this commitment with me this year and beyond.
I am an AmeriCorps member, and I will get things done.
