Service Projects

Members join forces to plan, participate in, and execute three major service project events each year. Volunteers are welcomed and appreciated. The service projects are as follows:

Make A Difference Day
Each year on the last Saturday in October, Superior AmeriCorps members take part in a Make A Difference Day service project. Make A Difference Day is a national effort sponsored by USA Weekend Magazine to encourage community service. While the individual project changes from year to year, one thing remains constant: the commitment to improving the local community. Past efforts include making fleece blankets for foster children, enhancing a Halloween party for the elderly, preparing local school nature trails, a blood drive and making improvements to playgrounds. Planning for MADD projects begins in September.

Martin Luther King Jr. Day of Service
Every January, Superior AmeriCorps members coordinate and implement a service project in honor of Martin Luther King Jr., one of America's most important civil rights leaders. The focus of these projects changes each year, but every project is intended to improve the local community. Past projects have included holding an essay and poster contest for youth, visiting the elderly, diversity presentations, food and clothing drives and creating a mural with youth. Planning for MLK Jr. Day projects begins in December.   

Final Service Project
The month of June provides a time for members to plan and execute various projects that assist the community. Past activities have included assisting Copper Country Habitat for Humanity, Bridgefest, Camp 911 and other local needs. Planning for final service projects begins in April.
