AmeriCorps members serve through more than 3,000 nonprofits, public agencies, and faith-based and other community organizations, helping meet critical needs in education, public safety, health and the environment. The variety of service opportunities is almost unlimited. Members may tutor and mentor youth, build affordable housing, teach computer skills, clean parks and streams, run after-school programs, or help communities respond to disasters.

Upon completion of their service, AmeriCorps members earn a Segal AmeriCorps Education Award to help finance their education. CWC will bill your tuition and fees to AmeriCorps upon receipt of your signed AmeriCorps voucher and payment request form.
