In the 20 years since AmeriCorps started, more than 28,000 Michigan volunteers have contributed over 41 million hours of service.

For more than 20 years, volunteers with AmeriCorps have served in nonprofits, schools, public agencies, and community- and faith-based groups across the country.

The Corporation for National and Community Service is the federal agency that administers AmeriCorps. 

And it turns out Michigan is one of the top states for AmeriCorps volunteers. 

National Director of AmeriCorps Bill Basl spoke with us today about the program and the more than 28,000 Michiganders who have contributed over 41 million hours of service. 

GUEST Bill Basl is the national director of AmeriCorps.
