As you know, there is widespread attention on the Coronavirus Disease – COVID-19. CivicSpark, along with the Corporation for National & Community Service (CNCS) and CaliforniaVolunteers (CV), is doing our best to stay up to date as this situation unfolds. With a focus on service to communities, AmeriCorps programs across the nation are finding ways to allocate more resources to emergency response, aiming to fill gaps where needed, and working to continue program services and support to projects.
With all of the changes, we know candidates may have concerns or questions about the potential impact of this virus on our programming for the 2020-21 service year. This is an emerging and rapidly changing situation, we are updating our response for current Fellows and partners as conditions change, while also thinking about implications for the future. It is very early, so we can’t be sure how this will affect the long-term outlook, but we want to address some questions as best we can. We will update this outlook as we learn more.
