AmeriCorps Member Aid Illinois

CHICAGO, April 28 /PRNewswire/ -- The Third Annual AmeriCorps Week (May 9-16) hopes to illustrate the continuing impact that AmeriCorps volunteers are having across America every day. There are over 2,300 AmeriCorps volunteers serving in Illinois this year, assisting at-risk youth, providing services for the homeless, building homes for low-income families, and assisting nonprofits in volunteer recruitment and achieving their vision.

"We are very proud of Illinois' AmeriCorps programs and grateful to the AmeriCorps members who are 'getting things done' all across the state," said Scott Kimmel, executive director of the Serve Illinois Commission. "AmeriCorps members make a significant impact on Illinois' ability to meet many local needs, and AmeriCorps Week is a perfect opportunity to recognize their great work."

AmeriCorps is sponsored by the Corporation for National and Community Service, an independent federal agency whose mission is to improve lives, strengthen communities, and foster civic engagement through service and volunteering. AmeriCorps is comprised of three main programs: AmeriCorps State and National, AmeriCorps VISTA, and AmeriCorps NCCC.

Since the creation of AmeriCorps in 1994, more then 20,000 volunteers from Illinois have served in AmeriCorps and have devoted more than 26 million hours of service to their country. In exchange for their service, AmeriCorps members earn an education award of up to $4,725 that can be used to pay for college or to pay back qualified student loans. Since 1994, more than 17,000 Illinois residents have qualified for AmeriCorps Education Awards totaling more than $59,100,000.

During AmeriCorps week, AmeriCorps members will perform various service projects that address homelessness and poverty. A Chicago based group, Chicago HOPES (Heightening Opportunity and Potential for Educational Success) provid
