On April 9, fourteen North Carolina mayors affirmed the value of AmeriCorps in their cities by taking part in the first-ever Mayor’s Day of Recognition for National Service. Led by the U.S. Conference of Mayors and the Corporation for National and Community Service, the day of recognition is a chance to highlight the solution-oriented contributions national service members make every day. NC Campus Compact VISTAs are supporting projects in several of these North Carolina cities, and we thank these mayors for recognizing the value of national service. The fourteen North Carolina mayors join over 800 mayors from across the country.
