What We Do

Each year, we award approximately $12 million in federal funding from the AmeriCorps agency to AmeriCorps programs in Pennsylvania.

We support organizations in AmeriCorps program development and implementation through targeted training, technical assistance, and monitoring.

We convene AmeriCorps program staff and AmeriCorps members to learn together and celebrate Pennsylvania’s spirit of service.

Who We Are

As Pennsylvania’s state service commission, we are a grantmaking partner of the AmeriCorps agency. AmeriCorps is the federal agency connecting individuals and organizations through service and volunteering to tackle the nation’s most pressing challenges.

We are a member of America's Service Commissions (ASC), a nonpartisan, nonprofit organization representing and promoting state service commissions across the U.S.

We are supported by the PennSERVE Advisory Board, a body of individuals appointed to provide guidance in strategic planning and the promotion of service initiatives throughout Pennsylvania.
