The nation’s mayors and county executives are increasingly turning to national service as a cost-effective strategy to address local challenges. By unleashing the power of citizens, AmeriCorps andSenior 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 across the country participated in the third-annual Mayors Day of Recognition for National Service on April 7, 2015. Here’s how members of The Corps Network participated!
