About the Pittsburgh AmeriCourier
The Pittsburgh AmeriCourier is the newsletter blog for Compass AmeriCorps. It is designed to be a resource for members of Compass Americorps  as well as for friends and family to find out more about what we do.

This website launched in December 2011 as the bimonthly newsletter for both Compass AmeriCorps and Literacy*AmeriCorps Pittsburgh.  Following the 2011-2012 service term, the newsletter changed to a blog format with weekly updates starting in January 2013.

About Compass and Literacy*AmeriCorps
