Learn about AmeriCorps

AmeriCorps is a network of national service programs that each take a different approach to improve lives and foster civic engagement. AmeriCorps members and AmeriCorps Seniors volunteers commit their time to address critical community needs like increasing academic achievement, mentoring youth, fighting poverty, sustaining national parks, preparing for disasters, and more. While serving, AmeriCorps members and AmeriCorps Seniors volunteers learn valuable work skills, earn money for education, and make lifelong community connections.

AmeriCorps State & National

AmeriCorps State and National supports a wide range of local service programs that engage thousands of Americans in intensive community service each year. Each AmeriCorps State and National program utilizes AmeriCorps funding to recruit, place, and supervise AmeriCorps members nationwide. Learn more about AmeriCorps State Grant Opportunities.
