AmeriCorps is an opportunity to make a big difference in your life and in the lives of those around you. It’s a chance to apply your skills and ideals toward helping others and meeting critical needs in the community. It is not employment, but national service.
**Note: You must be a certified U.S. citizen, a national, or legal permanent resident to apply.
