AmeriCorps NCCC teams serving across 32 states to address a wide scope of conservation, education and community needs

WASHINGTON, DC – AmeriCorps, the federal agency for national service and volunteerism, announces the deployment of 70 AmeriCorps NCCC teams to 32 states. The deployments began in January, with several more slated to run through late April, to increase outdoor education opportunities, provide tax assistance for low-income taxpayers and build renovate housing for homeless veterans. 

AmeriCorps NCCC is one of many programs under the AmeriCorps umbrella. AmeriCorps members serving with AmeriCorps NCCC are 18 to 26 years old and serve full-time on teams of about 10. Each team travels to a series of different 6- to 12-week projects in different places during their 10-month term, bringing a burst of energy and productivity to the community organizations they serve.

Teams are addressing a wide range of service projects, including financial assistance, conversation, home security, youth camp and education initiatives, renovating an indigenous cultural community center, restoring habitat, mitigating ecological and community fuel risks, and much more.

“AmeriCorps NCCC is humbled by the confidence communities and organizations around the country place in NCCC teams by requesting their support to meet pressing national and community priorities,” said Ken Goodson, director, AmeriCorps NCCC. “We’re equally excited that young adults answer the call to service, joining the AmeriCorps NCCC program to serve alongside other young adults committed to making our country a better place for all. I’m inspired by their dedication and look forward to seeing their numerous contributions and accomplishments in the weeks and months ahead.”
