Veterans AmeriCorps Initiative
In September 2011 Serve Rhode Island convened a group of veterans services professionals to work on the idea of creating an AmeriCorps program where the AC members would be veterans and program would be in service to other veterans. Several meetings were held and a study was conducted to recommend potential design elements for an AmeriCorps program. Below are minutes to meetings and FINAL REPORT of this initiative.
