WILMINGTON, DEL. – The Corporation for National and Community Service (CNCS) and the National Guard Bureau today announced a collaborative effort to place AmeriCorps members in Delaware and locations across the country as part of a new Joining Community Forces initiative.
Wendy Spencer, CEO of CNCS, and Brig. Gen. Marianne E. Watson, National Guard Bureau Director of Manpower and Personnel, joined Sen. Tom Carper, Sen. Chris Coons, Gov. Jack Markell, and Wilmington Mayor Dennis P. Williams in making the announcement at the Boys and Girls Club.
The partnership will strengthen National Guard support services by providing access to the human capital of AmeriCorps VISTA members for all 54 states and territories. AmeriCorps VISTA members will help to expand the National Guard’s capacity to provide services for guardsmen and their families at risk of homelessness, joblessness, or otherwise in need of economic stability assistance.
