On February 9, 2017, national service programs from across the state will gather at the Utah State Capitol to educate legislators on the role of national service and the impact they are having in their communities. This event provides national service programs an opportunity to help policy makers better understand what national service is and how the various programs work to address challenges within their community and improve the quality of life in Utah.Representatives from AmeriCorps State, Senior Corps (including Foster Grandparent, Senior Companion, and RSVP programs), and VISTA projects will set up in the rotunda with educational booths about their projects. After a brief kick-off event, the group will be recognized in both the House and Senate. Throughout the day, program representatives will have an opportunity to meet with legislators and commissioners to share stories of success and impact from their programs.
