Welcome to the AmeriFamily!

Dear new member,

Welcome to the City of Dubuque AmeriCorps family! We use the term “AmeriFamily” because that is what we feel truly represents what AmeriCorps is. AmeriCorps Members are the best people that we have ever met. As members and alumni, we are held together by the desire to do good within our community. As a new AmeriCorps Member, you are joining a network of over 800 alumni who have served with the City of Dubuque AmeriCorps Program and over 1 million AmeriCorps Members nationwide.

Our AmeriCorps Program is administered by the City of Dubuque, a sub-grantee of the Iowa Commission on Volunteer Service, which is a grantee of the Corporation for National and Community Service. AmeriCorps engages Americans of all ages and background to meet a community’s critical need. Our current grant focuses on the Campaign for Grade Level Reading and building Community Engagement with Teens.

This virtual "handbook" is designed to tell you more about AmeriCorps and answer many questions you may have regarding the goals and guidelines of the City of Dubuque's Program. If at any time, you have a question that cannot be answered by this handbook or your Member Service Agreement, please do not hesitate to contact the AmeriCorps Office. As AmeriCorps Alums, Sarah and I continue to feel the need and desire to serve, and we are here to serve you.

We look forward to an amazing year and we are so happy to have you as part of the AmeriFamily.

Thank you for your service,
Heather Satterly, Director
