Members of all ages join us from all over the country and locally to make a difference for students, families, and communities in need. People join for several different reasons-- to give back to the community and country, explore the education or nonprofit fields, or gain some "real-world experience." You won't get rich by doing AmeriCorps, but the rewards are substantial.
Our program year is 10.5 months long, beginning in September of each year. Members join us full-time and are placed in schools and community organizations, working with youth and adults of our community to improve education and skills.
