AmeriCorps Member Experience

Here is what AmeriCorps members have to say…  here.

“I’m honing my organization, multitasking and time management skills. I’m learning how to balance responsibility and asking for what I need.”"Personal research, relationships and communication have taught me more about the power of privilege and the need for accountability.  My service has been deeply personal, and I'm grateful for the opportunity to develop the skills needed to communicate on difficult topics in relation to my own identity."

AmeriCorps engages 80,000 members in intensive service annually to serve through nonprofit, faith-based, and community organizations at 21,000 locations across the country. These members help communities tackle pressing problems while mobilizing millions of volunteers for the organizations they serve. Since 1994, more than 1 million Americans have provided more than 1.3 billion hours of service to their communities and country through AmeriCorps.

AmeriCorps is a program of the Corporation for National and Community Service, a federal agency that engages millions of Americans in service through its AmeriCorps, Senior Corps, Social Innovation Fund, and Volunteer Generation Fund programs, and leads the President's national call to service initiative, United We Serve.
