Over the next few weeks, AmeriCorps NCCC team Delta 5 will be at the Manship House Museum working on a variety of projects to help the site prepare for re-opening. The AmeriCorps National Civilian Community Corps (NCCC) helps communities meet their most compelling needs. NCCC service issue areas include:
1. Disaster services (preparation, mitigation, response, recovery)
2. Environmental stewardship and conservation
3. Urban and rural development
4. Energy conservation
5. Infrastructure support
AmeriCorps team members are men and women age 18 to 24 who serve a full-time, 10-month term to address community needs on teams of about 9-11 members. Team Delta 5, comprised of seven members, will soon work on priming and painting the white board and picket fence surrounding the Manship House and Visitors Center. State Capitol Facilities have been busy pressure washing and repairing the fence to prepare it for painting.
