Kicking off the 20th anniversary of the AmeriCorp program, we’re proud to partner once again with the Mayor’s NYC Service Civic Corp program to welcome our 2014-2015 New York City Civic Corp members Kenny Montilla and Agnieszka (Agnes) Rybak. The New York City Civic Corp is a special service opportunity initiated by former Mayor Bloomberg in 2009. For the sixth consecutive year, Common Cents is one amongst select organizations to receive a team of Civic Corps for the 2014-2015 year. Our Civic Corps members completed a two week intensive training lead by NYC Service and Common Cents to become Penny Harvest School Support Fellows. They are now charged and prepared to increase volunteerism throughout our city and support our Penny Harvest Coaches in expanding service opportunities nearly half a million students!
