Hashtag AmeriStates - 2015 AmeriCorps Top Ten

As part of National Volunteer Week, CNCS, the federal agency that administers the AmeriCorps program, released the first-ever rankings of the states and cities that generate the most AmeriCorps members per capita.

The rankings were determined by associating the permanent address of AmeriCorps members’ with a U.S. designated place and state, including the District of Columbia. The analysis looked exclusively at members who served in the 2013 program year. For this analysis, a mid-sized city was defined as any place with a population greater than or equal to 100,000 people and less than 250,000 people. A large-sized city was defined as any place with a population greater than or equal to 250,000. The listed states and cities produce the highest number of AmeriCorps members per capita.
