What is AmeriCorps?
Each year, AmeriCorps has 75,000 service opportunities for adults of all ages and backgrounds. These are offered through local and national nonprofit groups. Your service could make a community safer, give a child a second chance, help protect the environment, and more. See the ServeMinnesota website for more information. (ServeMinnesota is AmeriCorps in Minnesota.)
Benefits of Serving in AmeriCorps:
If you complete a full-time AmeriCorps service, you'll earn a Segal AmeriCorps Education Award to pay for college or graduate school, or to pay back qualified student loans. If you complete a part-time service, you'll earn a partial Award. Some AmeriCorps members also receive a modest living allowance during their term of service. In addition, you'll gain new skills and experiences, and help others!
