More than a service opportunity, it is also a chance to build skills and to your resume while earning financial support during this AmeriCorps service commitment.

Seeing cigarette butts in snow banks makes me sad. I still recall when I read a study in graduate school that cigarette butts are a major element in marine litter. Smoking not only pollutes our lungs but also trashes the oceans.
