AmeriCorps is an opportunity to make a difference in your life as well as the lives of those around you. Similar to a domestic Peace Corps, it is a chance to apply your skills and ideals toward helping others in addition to helping others and meeting critical needs in your community. AmeriCorps matches your interests to the area of the country in which you would like to serve, creating a unique way to serve others. When a group of people come together with a goal in mind they can change the world. Whether your service makes a community safer, gives a child a second chance, or helps protect the environment, you'll be getting things done through AmeriCorps!
