Non-profit organizations from across Mississippi gathered today in Ocean Springs at the Mary C. O’Keefe Cultural Center to talk about service projects.
Volunteer Mississippi’s mission is to engage and support Mississippians of all ages and backgrounds in service to their community. The workshop gave organizations a chance to see what kind of services that AmeriCorps can offer to their nonprofit organization. Judy Stein with Volunteer Mississippi said, “My office oversees and manages AmeriCorps state programs and we are here seeking legal applicants to submit applications to manage AmeriCorps program to operate September 2018 through August 2019.”
Many organizations that were at the work shop told News 25 that they plan to use the services that AmeriCorps offers.
