The Parasol Tahoe Community Foundation's 2014-15 AmeriCorps members started in September and already are busy at host sites.

Members are providing services focusing on education, environmental issues and community services.

Parasol's AmeriCorps members engage our community with enthusiasm and passion. Throughout the year they will help local nonprofits by improving existing programs and creating new ones, developing relations and recruiting volunteers.

The impact each team leaves on our community ranges from innovative programs that make a difference in the lives of children in our community to helping with nutrition education.

"Everyone on this team has such unique skills and talents to bring to our community. They are already diving in to their roles and seeing how they can make a difference at their host site and our community," said Allison Eybel, Parasol's AmeriCorps Program Director. "It is such a pleasure to work with such eager, driven learners."

The AmeriCorps program is now in its 15th year at Incline Village. Read more at parasol.org.
