World AIDS Day 2014: A Week of AmeriCorps Activities in Atlanta

As a Member on the newest team in the AIDS United AmeriCorps Program, I celebrated World AIDS Day through service! In three days my four team members and I provided nearly 200 HIV tests and gave four school presentations all around Atlanta. Because young people aged 13-25 are disproportionately impacted by HIV/AIDS in Atlanta, we focused our outreach at youth.

Recognizing World AIDS Day in Cleveland

“1 in 5 people with HIV don’t know they have it, get tested, get care.” This was the message communicated by Team Cleveland on World AIDS Day. Clear and concise, the message stood out against our bright yellow shirts and caught the eye of the morning commuters passing by.

Commemorating AmeriCorps 20th Anniversity Through Service

Team Indy started the day off at Fort Benjamin Harrison with AmeriCorps members from across the state to celebrate the 20th Anniversary of AmeriCorps. The area was a sea of blue from everyone’s 20th Anniversary shirt! We were given an opportunity to introduce the AIDS United AmeriCorps Program and share how we impact the Indianapolis community. It was an incredible opportunity! Although we weren’t at the White House, we were able to watch a live-video feed of the President and were able to take the AmeriCorps pledge along with him. After awards and speeches were given, we were off to our first service project with Step Up!

Team Detroit Creates some HYPE with its Long-Term Project

When Team Detroit began preparing for our long-term project, we established a primary goal of creating a positive change in the city of Detroit that would last beyond our term of service. It was for this reason that we decided to commit our service to an established organization that would continue to serve the community for years to come. Our hope was that we would provide resources for this organization that they would otherwise not have, and that we would develop a framework for these resources to remain in place after our term of service was complete.
