National Service News – Not So Hidden Figures

Dear Friends and Colleagues,

Teamwork makes the dream work, or so we’re told.

Few movies demonstrated this better than the Oscar-nominated film “Hidden Figures” about the contributions of African-American women working behind the scenes as human calculators for NASA during the 1960s space race.

We cannot perform the calculations that sent Americans into space, but we can do the math on the programs and initiatives in the national service family. We like to share our story, too, and let everyone know the contributions that AmeriCorps, Senior Corps, and the Social Innovation Fund have made to our nation. 

For example, the Social Innovation Fund reached a new milestone this year – crossing the $1 billion mark in combined federal and private investments to grow innovative and effective solutions addressing our nation’s most-challenging problems. 

We have plenty of news like this to share about national service – and it’s important for our friends to help us spread the word. You can find a treasure trove of our shareable resources on our new impact page

We’re all winners when service is the prize, and we’d like to thank all of you who help make this possible. And our agents and managers. Did we forget anyone??? 

In service,

CNCS Office of External Affairs
