What is AmeriCorps?


AmeriCorps is a federally-funded program that focuses on giving back and strengthening communities, as well as building connections through service. This organization was created in 1993, but was previously known as the Corporation for National and Community Service (CNCS). The AmeriCorps mission is to "Get Things Done for America," essentially being able to provide support where needed, nationwide. This can be seen in various contexts, such as tutoring in elementary schools, helping rebuild communities and providing relief in natural disasters, environmentalism, encouraging healthy futures, and economic positions.
