The nation’s mayors, city leaders, county officials, and tribal leaders are increasingly turning to national service as a cost-effective strategy to address local challenges. By unleashing the power of citizens, AmeriCorps and Senior Corps programs have a positive and lasting impact – making our cities and counties better places to live. To spotlight the impact of national service and thank those who serve, mayors and county officials will participate in the annual National Service Recognition Day. On this day, mayors, city leaders, county officials, and tribal leaders will hold public events and use traditional and social media to highlight the value of national service to the nation’s cities and counties. Resources such as communications toolkit, logos, and a sample proclamation are available at National Service Recognition Day web page.
