A few members of the Americorps team gathered on the TwispWorks campus, one of the places you may have seen them at work the past several weeks.

For the first time since 2019, an Americorps team is at work in the Methow Valley.

The AmeriCorps National Civilian Community Corps (NCCC) program offers participants a chance to get their hands dirty, and Team Gold 3 has been doing just that since they arrived nearly nine weeks ago. Both on and off the TwispWorks campus, the team is contributing to the community as well as developing skills that will support their own growth and development as human beings and members of the work force.

The NCCC was formed in 1992, and became part of Americorps when that agency was created in 1993. The agency's mission is "To improve lives, strengthen communities, and foster civic engagement through service and volunteering." The NCCC provides young people an avenue through which they can serve communities and develop leadership skills while working as part of a team.
