Saving National Service: A message to our network:
As many of you may have heard the Office of Management and Budget at the federal level is recommending eliminating funding for the Corporation for National & Community Service which funds AmeriCorps and AmeriCorps VISTA. This news is concerning and I am sure many of you may be worried about our national service positions, programs, and the powerful service supported by CNCS resources.
A few things to share with everyone:
We value the work all of our service members are doing to improve the education system in Oregon so students can thrive, graduate, and become economically self sufficient. Please help us sustain these important programs!
From all of us at Campus Compact of Oregon, thank you!
