"When I start to feel overwhelmed with how much I have to get done in a given day, I change my perspective and think of how lucky I am to be given this opportunity to independently run a program. I remember that after my year of service is complete, it will take a while to climb my way up the nonprofit ladder and be given the freedom to make as many choices for a program as I have this year."

To spotlight the impact of national service and thank those who serve, mayors across the country will participate in the third-annual Mayors Day of Recognition for National Service on April 7, 2015. On this day, mayors and county executives will hold public events and use traditional and social media to highlight the value and impact of national service to the nation's cities. This year, 2,630 mayors and county leaders representing more than 149 million citizens will participate in this day of recognition.
