What is AmeriCorps?
AmeriCorps & National Service is often described as the "domestic Peace Corps." A network of service programs offers the opportunity for 70,000+ Americans to serve and meet community needs. Members serve with nonprofits, public agencies, and community organizations.
The organizations get they help they need and, in turn, provide a pathway to opportunity for young people entering the workforce. Young adults get needed job experience, learn valuable work skills, earn money for education, and develop an appreciation for citizenship.
