AmeriCorps Service Opportunities

AmeriCorps Volunteer Service Opportunities

AmeriCorps is a federally funded program that supports a wide range of local service programs by providing grants to a network of local and national organizations and agencies committed to using national service to address critical community needs in education, public safety, health, and the environment. Each of these organizations and agencies uses AmeriCorps funding to recruit, place, and supervise AmeriCorps members in intensive service positions where they learn valuable work skills, earn money for education, and develop an appreciation for citizenship.
