Americans can make a difference through AmeriCorps

AmeriCorps, the federal agency for national service and volunteerism, calls  on Americans to choose a future of service and join a community 1.25 million strong.

Each year, AmeriCorps connects adults, aged 18 and up, with flexible opportunities to address local challenges with local solutions, whether it is for a day, a year, or a lifetime. Opportunities are available across the country in nearly 40,000 locations focusing on the agency’s six key areas: education, economic opportunity, disaster services, environmental stewardship, healthy futures and veterans and military families.

“Today, more than 200,000 AmeriCorps members and AmeriCorps Seniors volunteers choose to create lasting change in communities by addressing local challenges with local solutions,” said Michael D. Smith, AmeriCorps CEO. “Whether you’re just starting your career, changing fields or are retired, there is an opportunity for everyone to make a difference and change lives, including your own. Choose to make a difference, choose your future, choose AmeriCorps.”

AmeriCorps provides opportunities for Americans to serve their country domestically, address the nation’s most pressing challenges, improve lives and communities and strengthen civic engagement. Each year, the agency places more than 200,000 AmeriCorps members and AmeriCorps Seniors volunteers in intensive service roles; and empowers millions more to serve as long-term, short-term, or one-time volunteers.

AmeriCorps offers opportunities for individuals of all backgrounds to be a part of the national service community, grow personally and professionally, and receive benefits for their service.
