Pathfinders of Perry County in partnership with the Appalachian Coal Country Team (ACCT) is excited and proud to announce that we will be hosting a team from the AmeriCorps National Civilian Community Corps from May 2-11.
The team will be working in the Bobby Davis Park, the International Peace Garden, on pedestrian walkways along Memorial Drive, Hazard High School Nature Trail and other places in the community. Anyone interested in working with the AmeriCorps team and the Pathfinders can contact Pathfinders of Perry County. If you would like to meet and thank the AmeriCorps NCCC Team for their service to our community there will be a potluck farewell dinner at the International Peace Garden on North Main Street Thursday, May 10 at 6 p.m.
AmeriCorps NCCC is a full-time, team-based residential program for men and women age 18–24. The mission of AmeriCorps NCCC is to strengthen communities and develop leaders through direct, team-based national and community service. In partnership with non-profits—secular and faith based, local municipalities, state governments, federal government, national or state parks, Indian Tribes and schools members complete service projects throughout the region they are assigned. Drawn from the successful models of the Civilian Conservation Corps of the 1930s and the U.S. military, AmeriCorps NCCC is built on the belief that civic responsibility is an inherent duty of all citizens and that national service programs work effectively with local communities to address pressing needs.
Pathfinders of Perry County is a non-profit citizen action group that promotes community wellbeing, health and engagement through development of routes and destinations for non-motorized transportation and recreation.
