AmeriCorps consists of three programs, AmeriCorps VISTA, AmeriCorps NCCC, and AmeriCorps State & National. Step one is to determine which program is right for you. Here's a quick break down of the three programs. Are you ready to become an AmeriCorps member? Fill out the form to get started!
AmeriCorps VISTA members support the fight against poverty. You will serve on a specific project at a nonprofit organization or public agency to fight illiteracy, improve health service, foster economic development, and assist low-income communities.
Do you like working with your hands, outside in the elements? AmeriCorps NCCC members serve in teams of 8 to 12 and are assigned to projects within their region. Your mission, if you choose to accept it, will be to support direct response and recovery to natural and other disasters, infrastructure improvement, environmental stewardship and conservation, and urban and rural development.
The broadest of the three programs, State and National members serve critical community needs in education, health and the environment. As a State and National member, you will serve directly with a local or national organization.
There are AmeriCorps members serving all over the country, from sea to shining sea! Are you looking to serve near home or would you rather serve somewhere you've never been before? Past AmeriCorps members have served in every state and most of our territories. Ready to be one of them? Become a member now!
