Here at HistoriCorps, we’ve been busy getting ready for the 2017 season, but we wanted to stop for half a minute and take a look at our – your – accomplishments, specifically, the media we’ve received over the past year. In total we’ve had over 40 news articles and features published about our projects and our mission. We thought we’d include a few highlights all in one place – it was a great year for us (in fact, possibly the best year!):
The New York Times
The most prestigious press we received was from The New York Times, in an article written by Allison Amend on April 27, 2016. Here’s the link. Titled “Lending a Library a Hand in Colorado,” the article featured our Buffalo Peaks Ranch project, which the writer had volunteered on in 2015. Amend starts it off by saying:
I am perched on a slippery roof ridge at the Buffalo Peaks Ranch in the rain, feet sliding on ancient asphalt shingles atop rotting plywood decking, tethered only by a rope. For fun.
Amend does a great job explaining the volunteer experience, and describing the Buffalo Peaks project and the hope to transform the site into the Rocky Mountain Land Library. If you’re looking for an in-depth reader’s experience of a HistoriCorps project, read this article! Many thanks to Allison for spreading the word!

The November 11 article was titled “Travel and Give Back with these Top Volunteer Vacations.” Catch the article here. HistoriCorps was included on a list of 13 top volunteer opportunities in the nation! Moretti included the key aspects of any HistoriCorps project:
