AmeriCorps is an opportunity to make a big difference in your life and in the lives of those around you. It’s a chance to apply your skills and ideals toward helping others and meeting critical needs in the community.

Each year, AmeriCorps offers 75,000 opportunities for adults of all ages and backgrounds to serve through a network of partnerships with local and national nonprofit groups. Whether your service makes a community safer, gives a child a second chance, or helps protect the environment, you’ll be getting things done through AmeriCorps! For more information about the AmeriCorps program and an AmeriCorps application please visit www.nationalservice.gov.

As an AmeriCorps member, you’ll gain new skills and experiences and you’ll also find the tremendous satisfaction that comes from helping others. In addition, members who complete their service earn an Education Award to help pay for college, graduate school, or to pay back qualified student loans.  AmeriCorps members may also receive a modest living allowance during their term of service.
