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.

About Habitat AmeriCorps

Habitat for Humanity International receives funding from AmeriCorps to support the Habitat AmeriCorps program. 

Habitat AmeriCorps is part of the growing national service movement. In partnership with Habitat organizations throughout the U.S., our program places AmeriCorps members to serve in the field and in the office to build and repair homes, expand housing services and engage the community. A service term with Habitat provides hands-on nonprofit experience that allows members to learn and develop lifelong skills and confidence. Our members serve a critical role in helping Habitat homeowners achieve the strength, stability and self-reliance they need to build a better future for themselves and their families. 

Learn what benefits are available through service with Habitat AmeriCorps, including a post-service award for student loans or educational expenses. You can also read stories of those whose lives were transformed through this unique and rewarding experience.
