What is Americorps?


Americorps LogoAmeriCorps is a U.S. federal government program that was created under President Bill Clinton by the National and Community Service Trust Act of 1993 as a way for Americans to give back to their communities and country.

The organization was founded to encourage citizens to strengthen their communities through acts of service. Today, thousands of AmeriCorps volunteers contribute to a culture of compassion by tackling the nation’s toughest problems, working to make our communities safer and healthier, and improving the lives of tens of millions of children, families, and adults in need.

AmeriCorps members work in a variety of areas including education, public safety, health, and the environment through direct service and capacity-building. Since its beginning, AmeriCorps members have provided more than 637 million hours of service.
