Second Annual Mayors’ Day of Recognition for National Service will take place Tuesday
RIVERSIDE, Calif. – Mayor Rusty Bailey will join mayors from across America on Tuesday (4/1) to recognize the efforts and impact of volunteer service organizations such as AmeriCorps and Senior Corps in our cities.
Mayor Bailey will thank volunteers at a reception and officially recognize their service at the City Council meeting at 6:30 p.m. Tuesday in the Art Pick Council Chamber at Riverside City Hall.
Both AmeriCorps and Senior Corps are overseen by the Corporation for National and Community Service, an organization that relies on citizens to volunteer their time to help solve problems.
In Riverside, AmeriCorps volunteers partner with students from UCR in the University Eastside Community Collaborative (UECC) to organize community service projects, offer academic tutoring and provide after-school and summer youth programs.
Senior Corps is also represented in Riverside by the Retired Senior Volunteer Program (RSVP), an organization that offers senior citizens a wide variety of volunteer opportunities with local organizations.
During the first Mayors’ Day of Recognition in 2013, 832 mayors representing nearly 100 million citizens participated and highlighted achievements by these corporations at public events.
