Welcome to Service!
As fall begins to appear in Western New York so do new AmeriCorps members committed to service! The Service Collaborative welcomes the new classes of AmeriCorps Builds Lives through Education (ABLE) and Serve New York VISTA and applauds the continued service of WNY YouthBuild and Regional Opportunity Corps. Over 150 full-time program participants are out in our communities every day, serving the needs of our neighbors and ensuring that Western New York is being left a better place today then yesterday.
We are continuing to recruit for our programs and encourage anyone interested in serving to look through our programs to find the perfect fit.
