Mission Statement

Together with residents and partners, we help forge resilient and inclusive communities of opportunity across America-great places to live, work, visit, do business and raise families.


LISC AmeriCorps is a national service program made possible by funding from the AmeriCorps federal agency to inspire community connection and promote community solutions. Since 1994, passionate, dedicated people serving as LISC AmeriCorps members with community development groups in the places where LISC works, from urban centers to rural communities, has been a vital part of our capacity-building strategy.

LISC AmeriCorps members serve an important, three-fold purpose: members serve with organizations to spearhead valuable projects; they engage local residents in the revitalization of their own neighborhoods; and they develop skills, experience and insight into community development and the profound value of service. LISC AmeriCorps is a valuable talent pipeline for community economic development and is an onramp for people with lived experience to secure good jobs. LISC AmeriCorps offers a competitive national service living stipend, leadership training opportunities, and opportunities to connect with like-minded peers across the LISC AmeriCorps network. LISC AmeriCorps equips emerging leaders with the skills to effect long-term community-based change.
