AmeriCorps State and National
The purpose of AmeriCorps State and National is to engage AmeriCorps members in direct service and capacity-building to address critical community needs. The grant applicant designs service activities for a team of members serving full- or part-time for one year or during the summer. Sample activities include tutoring and mentoring youth, providing job placement assistance to unemployed individuals, addressing childhood obesity through in-school and after-school physical activities, and weatherizing and retrofitting housing units for low-income households. AmeriCorps members also mobilize community volunteers and strengthen the capacity of the organizations where they serve.
The entities that receive grants are responsible for recruiting, selecting, and supervising AmeriCorps members to serve in their programs.
