Trump’s Budget Would Kill the Beloved Volunteer Program AmeriCorps - Kaitlin Mulhere, Time Money

In the 23 years of AmeriCorps' history, more than one million people have served in its ranks full-time. They've taught children how to read, helped urban high schools improve graduation rates, developed programs to prevent opioid abuse, and mobilized relief efforts after national disasters, among other projects. Yet President Trump’s new budget would completely cut funding for the program—and with it, hundreds of thousands of dollars in college funding that AmeriCorps' provides to volunteers would disappear. http://time.com/money/4703924/trump-budget-americorps-college-funding-cut/
