9/11 Day Service and Remembrance
Each year on September 11th Americans come together to honor and remember the attacks on our nation through community service - be it through big acts or small ones. The 9/11 National Day of Service and Remembrance brings volunteers together for service projects that honor the spirit of giving, community service, and volunteerism at the heart of America’s strength.

You Just Got Served Campaign
In honoring the wishes of the survivors and family members of those lost on 9/11, all Coloradans, including currently serving AmeriCorps members, are invited to participate in a random acts of kindness campaign. To participate do at least one good deed from September 4th - 11th and leave your “You Just Got Served Card” so that the person you served can pay it forward. If you take a photo and share it on social media, we can track just how wide this chain of kindness can grow.
AmeriCorps members are making big changes in their communities through many small acts each and every day. Join us in solving Colorado’s toughest challenges through national and community service.
