This June, Innovations in Civic Participation and America’s Service Commissions named the Vermont Youth Development Corps AmeriCorps*State Program (VYDC) one of the 52 most innovative AmeriCorps programs in the country.  This recognition is pretty awesome.  And in case you didn’t know, Dawn, our very own Program Director, is part of the AmeriCorps VYDC team.

You can read the section about VYDC below or check out the whole publication; the section on VYDC starts on page 20 (page 32 of the pdf). Also check out the other Vermont program that was recognized–VT Housing Conservation Board AmeriCorps on page 46 (page 58 of the pdf). For such a small state, Vermont makes a big impact.
