Eight Conservation Corps youth crew leaders will be participating in the AmeriCorps Week May 10 kick-off event that features service projects around the state.
Service events are open to the public, including a Como Park storm drain stenciling project hosted by Friends of the Mississippi River. At YMCA Camp Iduhapi in Loretto, Minn., volunteers will turn unused land into a recreation area for visitors. AmeriCorps members will attend an open forum conference on Tuesday and service-learning activities will continue through the week. AmeriCorps members receive a living stipend for their 10-month service commitment, working in various capacities to serve communities throughout the state.
