On Friday September 12th, 2014 AmeriCorps celebrated 20 years of service across America by reflecting on their experiences in front of Cloud Gate (“the Bean”) in Chicago’s Millennium Park. Current and former AmeriCorps members once again took the pledge to get things done to make our people safer, smarter and healthier. AmeriCorps is a network of local, state, and national service programs that connects over 70,000 Americans each year in service that impacts education, the environment, public safety, health, and homeland security. HandsOn Suburban Chicago has had the pleasure of hosting AmeriCorps members for over a decade now and are proud to host Jaime Hermosillo and Josh Boegner as this year’s Volunteers In Service to America (VISTA).
