USI AmeriCorps observes Make a Difference Day


Students in the University of Southern Indiana’s AmeriCorps program will observe Make a Difference Day on Friday, October 26, at the YMCA’s Caldwell Community Outreach Center, located at the Caldwell Housing Development not far from Glenwood Leadership Academy.

Beginning at 8:30 a.m., students will be painting, making repairs, and working on a variety of other projects. Work will continue until projects are complete – probably about 2 p.m. Students in the Evansville Housing Authority’s YouthBuild Evansville program are expected to help.

In the spring, students in USI’s AmeriCorps program and the YouthBuild program built two accessible garden beds and a shelving unit in the Culver Hoop House, an urban gardening partnership between the EVSC’s Culver Family Learning Center and the City of Evansville.
