NCCC Benefits

MEMBER BENEFITS

AmeriCorps NCCC minimizes all barriers to service so that anyone can be a part of this program. Members receive several benefits while serving and after completion of their service. Here is a quick run down on those benefits.

IN-SERVICE BENEFITS

  • Lodging, Travel, Relocation

    You will start your NCCC journey at one of our regional campuses where you'll receive training and spend time in between projects.

    • When you are not serving on a regional campus, you can expect to stay in various forms of lodging accommodations such as community centers, churches, campgrounds, or motel/hotel rooms.
    • We will pay for your travel expenses to your regional campus.
    • When you are not on campus, we will provide full travel accommodations for you to serve at your team’s assigned locations. You can expect to travel in 15-passenger vans that are provided by our program. Please note: you do not have to drive to participate in NCCC.
