2016 AmeriStates | Ranking National Service Nationwide

In celebration of the nearly 1 million Americans who have taken the pledge to “get things done,” as AmeriCorps members, CNCS released  the states and cities which produce the most AmeriCorps members for the second year in a row.

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 2014-15 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.

Since its inception more than 20 years ago, AmeriCorps’ impact has been felt in communities across our nation as its members served more than 1.3 billion hours in local communities to improve the lives of countless Americans. In October, the one millionth AmeriCorps member will take the AmeriCorps pledge, committing to “get things done” for America.
