Help strengthen communities through a year of service with Habitat AmeriCorps.
What is AmeriCorps?
AmeriCorps is the federal agency connecting individuals and organizations to tackle the nation’s most pressing challenges.
AmeriCorps focuses on these key areas to make an impact: economic opportunity, disaster response, education, environmental stewardship, healthy futures, and veterans and military families. Every year, more than 270,000 AmeriCorps members and AmeriCorps Seniors volunteers are placed with organizations across the country.
In partnership with local Habitat organizations, Habitat places AmeriCorps members to serve in a variety of roles to increase Habitat’s ability to build homes, engage communities, build capacity and increase productivity.
Since the program’s inception in 1994, Habitat AmeriCorps members have served more than 126,000 individuals, engaged more than 4.7 million volunteers and have contributed more than 18.6 million hours of service.
