Why serve with AmeriCorps?
Find your best fit
AmeriCorps members and AmeriCorps Seniors volunteers can apply to serve with any of our thousands of partner organizations. Through our programs, we offer opportunities with different time commitments and requirements, so that you can serve in whatever capacity works for your goals and lifestyle.
Be a part of something bigger
When you serve with AmeriCorps, you join a network of more than 1 million strong. AmeriCorps alumni continue to give back to the country through civic-minded activity. The community you build while serving with AmeriCorps is unlike any other.
Grow personally and professionally
Learn and grow while giving back to a community. Individuals who serve with AmeriCorps build new skillsets that they can take with them wherever they go. Older Americans can apply their hard-earned knowledge to make an impact in a new environment.
Receive benefits for your service
AmeriCorps provides several benefits for its volunteers and members. Education awards are available to AmeriCorps members, as well as supplemental health insurance, loan deferment, and childcare. Benefits vary by program.
