AmeriCorps is....

The national service movement that engages thousands of men and women of all ages and backgrounds in service often referred to as the domestic Peace Corps, aimed at meeting the needs in the areas of ... Education, Public Safety, Environment, and Human Services.


AmeriCorps is much more than a service program. It is a movement that unites Americans to improve our neighborhoods and our lives. In communities large and small throughout America, AmeriCorps Members are taking responsibility, learning valuable skills, and helping their friends and neighbors. AmeriCorps is part of a tradition of service, and it represents America at its best - making a lasting difference while promoting the values of community, responsibility, and opportunity.

 

AmeriCorps Members help meet the nation's critical needs in the areas of public safety, education, human needs, and the environment. In Pennsylvania, AmeriCorps State Programs are administered by PennSERVE, The Governor's Office of Citizen Service.
