Partner with AmeriCorps

AmeriCorps members have helped hundreds of community nonprofit organizations, faith-based groups, schools, and local agencies meet local needs in education, the environment, public safety, economic opportunity, disaster preparedness, and other critical areas.

AmeriCorps state grants are awarded to eligible organizations to recruit, train, and manage AmeriCorps members who address unmet community needs in the Commonwealth. Members are individuals who engage in community service and may receive a living allowance during their term of service. Upon successful completion of their service, members receive a Segal AmeriCorps Education Award from the National Service Trust.
