AmeriCorps is a program of the Corporation for National and Community Service, an independent federal agency whose mission is to engage Americans in intensive service to meet the nation’s critical needs in education, public safety, health, and the environment. It offers 75,000 opportunities for adults of all ages and backgrounds to serve through a network of partnerships with local and national nonprofit groups each year. Full-time members who complete their service earn a Segal AmeriCorps Education Award to pay for college, graduate school, or to pay back qualified student loans; members who serve part-time receive a partial Award. Some AmeriCorps members may also receive a modest living allowance during their term of service.
