Service by the Numbers

In coordination with state and local entities, national service responds to the most pressing issues facing our nation. AmeriCorps members and AmeriCorps Seniors volunteers prepare today’s students for tomorrow’s jobs, reduce crime, connect returning veterans to jobs, fight the opioid epidemic, support seniors to live independently, make college more accessible and affordable, and help Americans rebuild their lives following disasters.

How we build evidence of impact

The agency’s strategic evidence plan provides a roadmap for generating credible, relevant, and actionable information about the extent to which it is achieving its mission. 

At AmeriCorps, we view evidence building as an ongoing cycle, and incorporate the process into our work across the agency through four phases: innovation, implementation, improvement, and expanded impact.

Expanded impact

Using evaluation results, AmeriCorps provides the framework for other organizations to replicate and scale programs in their communities.

Supporting research and evaluation

The AmeriCorps Office of Research and Evaluation (ORE) produces accurate and timely research on national service, social innovation, volunteering, and civic engagement. We conduct original and sponsored research and evaluations, support evaluations of grantees’ research and programs, and promote evidence-based service models – all of which infuses data into AmeriCorps programs and contributes to the public understanding of national service.
