AmeriCorps members Get Things Done for America – building safer, stronger, healthier, and more united communities across the nation. Through these extraordinary acts of citizenship by ordinary Americans, AmeriCorps is improving the lives of tens of millions of our most vulnerable citizens.
The AmeriCorps Network (AmeriCorps State & National) consists of local, regional, and national organizations who are committed to using national service to address critical community needs in education, public safety, health, and the environment. These organizations are awarded grants on an annual basis by CNCS. To view a list of this year's current grantees, click the link below.
AmeriCorps engages more than 75,000 men and women in committed service each year at more than 21,000 locations including nonprofits, schools, public agencies, and community and faith-based groups across the country. AmeriCorps members are preparing today’s students for tomorrow’s jobs, reducing crime and reviving cities, connecting returning veterans to jobs, fighting the opioid epidemic, supporting seniors to live independently and with dignity, making college more accessible and affordable, and helping Americans rebuild their lives following a disaster, all while adding unique value to the nation’s nonprofit sector.
Through their service, AmeriCorps members gain valuable skills, along with quantifiable professional and educational benefits, and the experience has a lasting impact on the members and the communities they serve.
