What is AmeriCorps?
AmeriCorps provides opportunities for people of all ages and backgrounds to give their time and talent to strengthen communities across our country. By bringing people together to serve communities, AmeriCorps is making service to others an indispensable part of the American experience.
Members serve at local organizations through several programs: State and National, VISTA, NCCC, Foster Grandparents, Senior Companions, and RSVP. 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.
