BRING AMERICORPS TO YOUR ORGANIZATION!

OVERVIEW OF NATIONAL SERVICE PROGRAMS

AmeriCorps engages more than 80,000 Americans in intensive service each year at nonprofits, schools, public agencies, and community and faith-based groups across the country. Since the program’s founding in 1994, more than 800,000 AmeriCorps members have contributed more than 1 billion hours in service across America while tackling pressing problems and mobilizing millions of volunteers for the organizations they serve.

AmeriCorps programs do more than move communities forward; they serve their members by creating jobs and providing pathways to opportunity for young people entering the workforce. AmeriCorps places thousands of young adults into intensive service positions where they learn valuable work skills, earn money for education, and develop an appreciation for citizenship.

These programming types make up AmeriCorps:

  • AmeriCorps State 
  • AmeriCorps National
  • AmeriCorps Volunteers In Service To America (VISTA)
  • AmeriCorps National Civilian Community Corps (NCCC)
