What is AmeriCorps?

AmeriCorps is a network of national service programs that meet critical needs in areas such as education, public safety, health, and the environment through partnerships with private and public entities. Over 500,000 students participate in various AmeriCorps projects. All members who complete a term of service receive education awards. These awards are worth $5500 and can be used to pay for college, graduate school, training at a qualified vocational institution, or to repay qualified student loans.
