This Month's Challenge

The National Commission on Military, National, and Public Service said that AmeriCorps is America's best kept secret. 

This month's challenge:
1. In its discussion of barriers, what did they identify as the most significant barrier to AmeriCorps service?
2. In the discussion of options to expand pathways to service, name 2 of the potential actions they cite.

Want a bonus? What is the first name of the AmeriCorps Alum profiled under barriers and what uniform is she wearing?
