AmeriCorps Alums Come out in Force for 2nd Annual Heller School Event

January 11, 2011

On December 8, 2010, nearly 100 AmeriCorps alums, current members and students, and faculty and friends of the Heller School gathered at WorkBar in downtown Boston for "Beyond Your Service Year: AmeriCorps Alums Networking Social Featuring the Heller School." The goals of the event were to build the AmeriCorps Alums community in Boston and showcase AmeriCorps' unique partnership with Heller, which has invested $1M in exclusive scholarships through the National Service Scholarship Program. This one-of-a-kind National Service Scholarship Program is designed to honor national and community service by recognizing those who have served in AmeriCorps.

After being welcomed and inspired by Mary Bruce, Co-Chair of Boston AmeriCorps Alums Board, and Tom Broussard, Associate Dean of Admissions and Career Services for the Heller School, attendees had the opportunity to participate in either an MBA, MA in Sustainable International Development or MPP panel to learn more about each program. Current Heller faculty and students, who are also AmeriCorps Alums, spoke about how their service experience influenced their decision to apply for business or policy school, and how their service background makes for a good match with Heller.
