SERVICE IN ACTION
Take a look at the many ways Project MARS/AmeriCorps is helping others succeed. AmeriCorps Service Members have an immense impact on WNC children and schools.

WHAT WE DO

Reinforcing our Commitment
Our goal is to promote great opportunities for those in need. With access to the right resources, people can become empowered by their own abilities and gain the confidence to fulfill their potential. Members recruit volunteers directly from the community through engagement events throughout WNC. These volunteers serve directly in our schools and engage with our children in need.
