Give a Year. Change the World. Then What?
Service can sometimes feel all-consuming, and it’s hard to see into the future to where you’ll be once your year is over. Thanks to our corporate partner Comcast NBCUniversal, AmeriCorps members are consistently provided with the supports they need to create their Leadership After City Year plans. Hear more from Service Leader Anita Lantz on how Comcast supports AmeriCorps members through initiatives like Comcast Career Day!
