It’s that time of year again! All around the country, new CVN AmeriCorps Members are joining with their communities, Program Directors and Site Supervisors to learn the in’s and out’s of National Service and kick off their AmeriCorps year. Here’s what we found out about a few of our programs’ orientations…
Border Servant Corps hosted 18 incoming AmeriCorps Members during their orientation in El Paso, Texas. They visited many social service organizations in the region as part of their border immersion experience. Border Servant Corps AmericCorps Members live and serve in Las Creces,
New Mexico and El Paso, Texas.

Five new Project SERVE AmeriCorps Members began orientation
with Catholic Charities of Baltimore on August 24th. They enthusiastically embraced the week learning about Catholic Charities, intentional community, social justice, simplicity and sustainability. Their week included a trip to the Baltimore Farmer’s Market to learn about local food sourcing, a tour of the bus system in Baltimore and a special trip to each Catholic Charities program where the Member will be serving.
