Americorps to Partner with Winterville Mounds

In mid-January a team of AmeriCorps National Civilian Community Corps workers from around the country will arrive at Winterville Mounds to undertake a mound-clearing project. About a dozen AmeriCorps team members will live and work on site from January 13 through February 5.

"We are grateful to the AmeriCorps program for choosing Winterville as one its projects, and we look forward to having the workers here,"" said Winterville Mounds director Mark Howell. "I know the Greenville community will help us make them feel welcome."

AmeriCorps NCCC is a full-time, team-based residential program for men and women age 1824. Members are assigned to one of five campuses, located in Denver, Colorado; Sacramento, California; Perry Point, Maryland; Vicksburg, Mississippi; and Vinton, Iowa.

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.
