For the month of August, NPR is conducting a blog campaign called Participation Nation. They are collecting submissions from around the country of Americans doing good things. At the end of the month, all of the stories will be woven together to “make a story of Americans by Americans for Americans”.
The UC Berkeley Coaching Corps Chapter, which has donated over 15,000 hours in coaching, was featured for their service in Berkeley, Richmond, Oakland and El Cerrito.
The article ran on all NPR affiliates across the country. Each week 26.4 million people listen to NPR programs and newscasts on 959 public radio stations nationwide. The NPR.org serves about 19 million visitors a month on web and digital platforms.
