Corporation for National & Community Service
Created in 1993, the Corporation gives over 50,000 Americans an opportunity to improve their community through service as AmeriCorps members. AmeriCorps members are united by four common goals:
- Getting Things Done through direct and demonstrable service that helps solve community problems in the areas of education, public safety, environment and other human needs.
- Strengthening Communities by bringing together Americans of all ages and backgrounds in the common effort to improve our communities.
- Encouraging Responsibility by enabling members to explore and exercise their responsibilities towards their communities, their families and themselves.
- Expanding Opportunity by enhancing members’ educational opportunities, job experience, and life skills.
