The Ministry of Caring AmeriCorps Program



AmeriCorps engages more than 80,000 Americans in intensive service each year at nonprofits, schools, public agencies, and community and faith-based groups across the country. Since the program’s founding in 1994, more than 800,000 AmeriCorps members have contributed more than 1 billion hours in service across America while tackling pressing problems and mobilizing millions of volunteers for the organizations they serve.

AmeriCorps members serve approximately 40 hours per week and will receive a living allowance and the opportunity to defer student loans with most loan providers while enrolled. Full time members, who serve 1700 hours over a one year period, can also elect to receive health care and childcare assistance if eligible. Upon successful completion of the term and hours of service, members will receive an education award that can be used towards qualified student loans and future education expenses.

Opportunities to serve your community are now available! Apply here.

As a member of the Ministry of Caring AmeriCorps team, you will serve directly with Ministry of Caring clients and residents to bring positive change to those most in need.
