Provo is a service-minded community and we take care of each other. We spent the first part of this year celebrating ProvoServes; and it's just a great reminder of the good people we have in Provo. The spirit of service here is just another reason Provo is a great place to be.
I wanted to share a statement from AmeriCorp that boasts Provo as the #1 Small City that produces the most AmeriCorps members.
AmeriCorps announced today that Provo is ranked #1 in the Top 10 Small Cities that produces the most Americorps members, "according to new data released today by the Corporation for National and Community Service (CNCS), the federal agency that administers the AmeriCorps program and leads the nation’s national service and volunteer programs.
Every year, 75,000 AmeriCorps members serve through 21,600 schools, nonprofits, and community and faith-based organizations across the country. They tutor and mentor young people, connect veterans to jobs, care for seniors, reduce crime and revive cities, fight the opioid epidemic, and meet other critical needs."

I am so proud of our community and the service we give to each other and those in need!
