Summer of Service is a simplified version of NCCC’s other programs, on a shortened timeframe. Summer of Service participants will pursue the same NCCC mission of “strengthening communities and developing leaders through service.”
As with all other NCCC programs, members will participate in pre-service training, albeit a shorter version, and serve on teams. NCCC teams will have project sponsors, site supervisors, and address a community-identified priority.
Summer of Service projects will focus on:
- environmental stewardship and/or climate change mitigation;
- affordable housing; and/or
- other types of community-focused service activities.
Examples of typical summer projects include cabin maintenance, education projects such as tutoring, mucking and gutting homes affected by disasters, trail maintenance, and construction, supporting food banks to alleviate hunger, and other community identified priorities.

NCCC Position Options
Members are assigned to a regional campus to complete initial training and to receive team assignments. Diverse teams of 18-26* year-olds work under the direction of one team leader and complete the service term living and serving together. Members are responsible for completing Corps Training Institute, earning 1700 service hours, participating in physical training, and contributing to various team activities.
Team leaders are assigned a team of eight to 10 members. This role is not a staff position; however, team leaders are expected to guide and support the team throughout the service term. Team leaders are responsible for completing Team Leader Training, prior to member arrival. Team leaders conduct daily team activities and serve as the liaison between the team, the project sponsor, and AmeriCorps NCCC staff. Please note anyone may apply to be a team leader. Prior service experience is not required.
