Today begins Black History Month, which we celebrate daily, especially in February. Black history is American history and is made every single day. One story cannot be told without the other. May this month represent the strength, creativity, and achievements of this incredible community.

"A people without the knowledge of their past history, origin, and culture is like a tree without roots." — Marcus Garvey

"To be honest, I didn't even know what AmeriCorps was when I started the program. I was in a jam and got offered to do something that I love and get paid for it. And it might not be a lot of money, but you also receive assistance with school and to me that is awesome."

This #MemberMonday, we are excited to highlight Kyle, who is serving with Foundation For Recovery in Las Vegas! His experience, empathy and desire to help others let us know that his clients are in good hands. Thank you so much for your service thus far, Kyle! AmeriCorps Nevada is lucky to have you.

This week, our final highlight brings light to the Eli Segal Education Award that members can receive once their term of service has been satisfactorily completed! 😍

Ways you can use the educational award: Paying educational expenses (at eligible schools and at certain GI Bill-approved programs for veterans), Repaying Qualified Student Loans (loans backed by Title IV of the Higher Ed Act, loans under Titles VII or VIII of the Public Service Health Act, or loans made by a state agency)!

"I love coming into the center knowing that I am making a difference for my clients that request help. I enjoy that I as a SHIP worker I can do little things like helping them fax a paper, understand a letter, making a phone call, or even handing them an application for assistance makes someone else' day a whole lot better and relieves any stress that may come."

January 4th was National Trivia Day, and you might wonder why a national service commission would mention such a thing. Still, one word we came across when considering sharing definitions of exciting words related to our work- was Hygge.

Serving others can be one of the most rewarding things to do as a human, but as with anything, one must take care of themselves to do it well.

This time of year is usually for setting goals, choosing resolutions, or manifesting what we want for the next 12 months- one thing we want to display for ourselves and the Nevadans we serve is Hygge.

We hope that your year (and ours) has pockets of Hygge, so we can continue serving others with empathy, compassion and kindness.

New Year...new goals? 👀

If one of your goals is to get out of the house more, pursue your passions, reconnect with a population or issue you once had a love for, or any of the many other things that can lead to volunteering as your answer- consider using NV Volunteer Connect!

What is NV Volunteer Connect? It is a tool created by us, housed on our website, that allows individuals to search for opportunities and organizations to post those opportunities. We think it's pretty neat.
