What is AmeriCorps?

AmeriCorps (pronounced Americor) is a network of national service programs, made up of three primary programs that each take a different approach to improving lives and fostering civic engagement. Members commit their time to address critical community needs like increasing academic achievement, mentoring youth, fighting poverty, sustaining national parks, preparing for disasters, and more. In exchange for a term of service, AmeriCorps members earn a living allowance and an education award.
