Welcome to DC: Resource Guide for DC AmeriCorps Members

Tuesday, December 31, 2013
The Welcome to DC Resource Guide incorporates feedback collected from past and present AmeriCorps members with their top suggestions and advice for new AmeriCorps members starting their year of service in the District of Columbia.
The guide provides an introduction to the District with information about the different wards and the diverse neighborhoods that add to its charm. There are also many useful tips to help with all aspects of living and serving in an expensive city on a modest AmeriCorps stipend. Use the guide for tips on grocery shopping, securing housing, can be an important resource for the transition and adjustment for those who are new to the District.
