AmeriCorps Training Center Expanding
Yesterday, at the Vinton Lions meeting, news was presented that in April 2010 there would be another unit of AmeriCorps volunteers starting at the Vinton campus located at the Iowa Braille and Sight Saving School. So, there will be 240 volunteers stationed in Vinton to work on projects throughout the Midwest region. The overlapping class of 80 members will still be here when the next regular class of 240 members starts in January 2011. Then, until the overlapping class graduates, there will be 320 members stationed at the Vinton campus. Wow, that is great news for Vinton and the Midwest!
