Annually, AmeriCorps connects more than 75,000 Americans with opportunities for national service at nonprofits, schools, public agencies, and faith-based groups across the country. These AmeriCorps members tackle pressing concerns like homelessness, unemployment, and financial illiteracy, and engage millions of volunteers to get things done in their communities. More than 1,000,000 members have completed more than 1 billion service hours since the program’s start in 1994.
AmeriCorps members serve approximately 40 hours per week. While enrolled, full time members are eligible to receive a living allowance and for student loan deferment. Health care and childcare assistance are also available to those members serving on a full-time basis. Upon successful completion of a term of service, members receive an education award to pay student loans or tuition at qualifying institutions.
