    In celebration of National Service Recognition Day, Yavapai County Supervisor Jack Smith, Chino Valley Mayor Daryl Croft, Prescott Mayor Pro Tem Billie Orr, and Business Liaison Katelyn Ward from Congressman Paul Gosar’s office, will be highlighting the impact AmeriCorps member of Arizona Serve on April 2nd at 9:30 am at Granite Creek Park.

    National Service Recognition Day is a nationwide bipartisan effort to recognize the positive impact of national service, to thank those who serve, and to encourage more citizens to give back to their communities.

    This day is sponsored by the Corporation for National and Community Service (CNCS), with support from the National League of Cities, the National Association of Counties, and Cities of Service. As the federal agency for service and volunteering, CNCS annually engages millions of Americans in service at more than 50,000 locations through AmeriCorps, Senior Corps, and other programs. National service participants address the most pressing challenges facing our counties and nation. From helping communities recover from natural disasters, fighting the
    opioid epidemic, restoring parks, strengthening public safety, to tutoring and mentoring disadvantaged students, national service members get things done.

    “National Service in Yavapai County has almost doubled in the last year,” said Annie Reifsnyder, Program and Training Manager of Arizona Serve of Prescott College. “We appreciate our public officials recognizing the amazing work AmeriCorps members are doing for nonprofits and public entities throughout the quad cities.

    Along with being recognized by officials this day, Arizona Serve’s Prescott Team will partner with the City of Prescott Parks and Recreations Department for a trail cleanup at Granite Creek Park.

    “The City of Prescott Recreation Services Department relies heavily on community partnerships to keep our parks and trails enjoyable for visitors and residents,” said Kelly Tolbert, Recreation Lead for The City of Prescott. “Valuable projects, such as the upcoming National Service
    Recognition Day with Arizona Serve is a perfect example of mutually beneficial relationships helping us to achieve our goals.”

    Arizona Serve currently supports 28 AmeriCorps State and VISTA members in our area who each serve in a specific poverty-relief project with a local organization. Some of these partner organizations include Boys to Men Mentoring Network, West Yavapai Guidance Clinic Foundation, Prescott Unified School District, Yavapai County Community Health Services, The Launch Pad, GEM Environmental, Sonoran Prevention Works, and Yavapai CASA for Kids Foundation.

    “Serving within the community has been very rewarding for my own professional growth,” said Sarah Haber, VISTA Team Leader of Arizona Serve of Prescott College. “Receiving that recognition reminds me how impactful my service has been.”
