UW Receives Over $200k From Americorps Program

The University of Wyoming received $217,000 from the AmeriCorps' Connecting Campus and Community Program this year.

Erin Olsen coordinates the University's Service, Leadership and Community Engagement Office.  She says the AmeriCorps program continues to provide volunteers to help meet community needs throughout Wyoming.

Olsen says the volunteers focus on six key areas facing communities -- disaster services, economic opportunity, education, environmental stewardship, healthy futures and veterans and military families.
