Civic leaders, elected officials, and community groups joined together to dedicate the new AmeriCorps National Civilian Community Corps (NCCC) Atlantic Region Campus at the former Sacred Heart of Mary School in Baltimore.
AmeriCorps NCCC, which is administered by the Corporation for National and Community Service (CNCS), engages more than 1,600 individuals aged 18 to 24 each year who address critical needs related to natural and other disasters, infrastructure improvement, environmental stewardship and conservation, energy conservation, and urban and rural development. The Baltimore-based campus will become a training facility for members who will serve in Maryland and 13 other states and territories.
CNCS CEO Wendy Spencer, Sen. Barbara Mikulski, Archbishop William E. Lori, and AmeriCorps NCCC Director Kate Raftery join the staff of the AmeriCorps NCCC Atlantic Region Campus in cutting the ribbon on their future home in Baltimore, MD. The new campus will be located at the former Sacred Heart of Mary School and will be open in spring of 2013. Corporation for National and Community Service Photo.
