The AmeriCorps Evidence Exchange is a repository of research and evaluation reports funded through AmeriCorps resources. The reports contained in this repository are intended to:

  • Help deepen the agency’s understanding of the most effective interventions it has funded to date;
  • Assess effectiveness and efficiency of National Service Programs; and
  • Broaden foundational research on national service, volunteering and civic engagement.
     

The Evidence Exchange is structured with three filters. In the coming fiscal year, the repository will be updated to allow for improved user experience. Until then, to maximize your searchability, please utilize the AmeriCorps Evidence Exchange Meta-Data Glossary for keyword searching by “tags” assigned and contained for each report.
