Each year during AmeriCorps Week, AmeriCorps members and alums are recognized for the extraordinary impact they make across our nation every day.  The popularity of our new program is a testament to the great need for technology training in our community, and Kimberly has embraced the task head-on to provide outstanding service and learning opportunities for our patrons.
