AmeriCorps Alums Bloomington is a student organization that aims to connect, support and mobilize AmeriCorps Alums in order to strengthen our community and our nation. The primary functions are to:
Create a network of AmeriCorps alumni in the IU community
Connect local AmeriCorps alumni to other alumni on a state level
Promote service initiatives
Serve as an informational resource regarding AmeriCorps for Indiana University and the Bloomington community.
A huge thank you to those who helped out and/or attended our panel discussion this past Tuesday! I know everyone is busy and I'm very happy we had such a good and interest in learning more about the current and future state of AmeriCorps.
Shirley Sagawa to speak at IUB (via Skype)
One of our panelists, Dr. Les Lenkowsky, teaches a class on Civil Society and Public Policy and has included a section on AmeriCorps this semester. Shirley Sagawa, author of The American Way to Change, will be speaking to his class next Friday, April 15 at 3pm (this is a change from 1:30pm that was included in the last email) Dr. Lenkowsky has graciously opened his class to interested alums. Please RSVP by Monday if you are interested in joining that discussion.
Continuing students - Please don't forget to submit nominations for next year's executive team. We have been more active this year than in previous years and we hope to continue growing our support and bringing more opportunities for Alums to the Bloomington area. This is not exclusive to SPEA students! Feel free to email Stefanie, our current president, at email@example.com if you have any questions.
Red Cross First Aid Certification!
Don't forget that we have a special rate of $36 for Alums (discounted from $50) to be certified (or re-certified) for Red Cross First Aid/CPR. The first seven people to RSVP for the course will get a discounted rate of $25. This will be a blended course, which means you will complete a portion of the class online before attending the class. The online portion will take 1-4 hours to complete. The classroom portion will take place on April 27 from 6-10PM. Deadline for registration is April 15. If you are interested, please respond to Jesse Freedman (firstname.lastname@example.org) with your mailing address, phone number, and email address and we will take care of the registration.
