We Focus on Six Key Areas to Make an Impact
Our programs serve as a pathway to employment opportunities and help develop vital work skills. We build and rehabilitate affordable housing, provide financial literacy training, and connect people to jobs.
When disaster strikes, we repair homes, assist survivors, and help restore communities when it matters most. We have deployed thousands of members and volunteers to areas affected by hurricanes, wildfires, floods, and tornadoes.
We serve on projects that cover thousands of acres of public lands across America – including many with the National Park Service. We help conserve natural habitats, protect clean air and water, and reduce utility bills by improving home energy efficiency.
Veterans & Military Families
We provide assistance to nearly 500,000 veterans and military families by connecting them to education opportunities, jobs, and the benefits they have earned. Many veterans also volunteer with us so they can continue to serve their country.
United We Serve
President Biden calls upon Americans to unite through national service and volunteerism to counter the corrosive effects of hate-fueled violence on our democracy and public safety.
National Partnership for Student Success
The National Partnership for Student Success supports a nationwide three-year effort to engage 250,000 more tutors and mentors to accelerate student recovery and success.
READY SET SERVE
AmeriCorps is a proud partner of the READY SET campaign, a nationwide call to action to support students impacted by COVID-19. Become a tutor, a mentor, or serve young people through AmeriCorps opportunities.
Connecting Individuals and Organizations to Help Communities Tackle Their Toughest Challenges
Every year, we place more than 250,000 AmeriCorps members and AmeriCorps Seniors volunteers with organizations across the country.
AmeriCorps is a federal agency that funds organizations to make positive impact in communities. To support the placement of AmeriCorps members and AmeriCorps Seniors volunteers in communities, we provide more than $800 million in grants every year.
