What is AmeriCorps?
We recognize that people can serve their country in a multitude of ways, including military and civilian service. We value each and every way an individual is called to serve. AmeriCorps engages more than 75,000 men and women in intensive service each year through more than 15,000 non-profits, schools, public agencies, and community and faith based groups across the country. AmeriCorps members help communities tackle pressing problems while mobilizing millions of volunteers for the organizations they serve. Members gain valuable professional, educational and life experience that has a lasting impact on the members and the communities they serve.
