Organization

AmeriCorps (formerly known as The Corporation for National and Community Service) brings people together to serve communities. AmeriCorps members serve directly with organizations and nonprofits to tackle our nation’s most pressing challenges. We invest in thousands of nonprofit and faith-based groups that are making a difference across the country. We are AmeriCorps, Senior Corps, the Volunteer Generation Fund, and more. We serve, we build, and we make an impact that changes lives and communities. AmeriCorps National Civilian Community Corps (NCCC) strengthens communities and develops leaders through direct, team-based national and community service. In partnership with non-profits-secular and faith based-local municipalities, state governments, federal government, national and state parks, Native American tribes, and schools, members complete service projects throughout the region they are assigned. AmeriCorps NCCC is a full-time, team-based residential program for men and women age 18-24. Members are assigned to one of four campuses -Aurora, CO; Sacramento, CA; Vicksburg, MS; and Vinton, IA. Drawn from the successful models of the Civilian Conservation Corps of the 1930s and the U.S. military, AmeriCorps NCCC is built on the belief that civic responsibility is an inherent duty of all citizens and that national service programs work effectively with local communities to address pressing needs. Applicants apply and are selected for one of two programs: the NCCC Traditional Program and FEMA Corps. AmeriCorps VISTA is the national service program designed specifically to fight poverty. Founded as Volunteers in Service to America in 1965, and incorporated into the AmeriCorps network of programs in 1993, VISTA has been on the front lines in the fight against poverty in America for more than 50 years. Each VISTA member makes a year-long, full-time commitment to serve on a specific project at a nonprofit organization or public agency. In return for their service, AmeriCorps VISTA members receive a modest living allowance and health benefits during their service, and have the option of receiving a Segal AmeriCorps Education Award or post-service stipend after completing their service. About 6,500 VISTAs are placed each year in more than 1,200 projects in low-income communities around the country. VISTA members generally do not provide direct services, such as tutoring children or building homes. Instead, they focus their efforts on building the organizational, administrative, and financial capacity of organizations that fight illiteracy, improve health services, foster economic development, and otherwise assist low-income communities. VISTAs develop programs to meet a need, write grants, and recruit and train volunteers. http://www.americorps.gov
