Volunteer Experience Announced!

NAEPC teamed up with Keep Nassau Beautiful to participate in a clean up of American Beach, a unique Florida seaside community. Founded in 1935 by Abraham Lincoln Lewis, American Beach was created as a vacation haven on Amelia Island for African-Americans, for whom access to other resorts was denied in the days before desegregation. American Beach is listed on the National Register of Historic Places and is now home to a variety of people, from federal judges and corporate executives to custodians. This event will allow participants to spend the day enjoying northeast Florida while giving back to the island that hosted our 46th annual event. The project will complete no later than 3:00 pm on Saturday, November 14, 2009.
