Years Served: 

In 2012, CNCS partnered with the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) to create a separate program track of AmeriCorps NCCC focused on emergency management and response that was christened FEMA Corps. These AmeriCorps members provide support by working directly with disaster survivors, supporting disaster recovery centers, and sharing valuable disaster preparedness and mitigation information with the public. Many of our FEMA Corps members have used their national service experience to start careers in emergency management.
